Franky Flowers – “Corpse” (Stereogum Premiere)

For their first release of the new year, the group of LA high school students known as Franky Flowers has put together a new high energy surf-grunge piece to add to their steadily growing discography. “Corpse” features fast paced lyrics sung somewhere between Built To Spill and Blink-182 over guitars and bass that are about as crunchy and distorted as you can get without becoming a pile of non-descript fuzz. This plus the band’s atypical intro and straight-shooting lyrics makes “Corpse” clever, endearing, and distinctly Franky Flowers. Some words from the band:

“Corpse” is a negative song. It describes death and all the thoughts about it: the fear, the confusion and the loathing. There isn’t any one thing this song is specifically about, it’s kind of a collage of dark thoughts all splattered onto a canvas.

Listen below.

Franky Flowers just played Noise Pop in San Francisco. They’ll be at SXSW this month.
