At the end of June we learned Philly indie-rock combo Corey Flood would soon release their debut album Hanging Garden. It’s set to drop next week, and now we get another preview beyond “Heaven Or” and “Honey.” It’s a rolling post-punk track called “Down The Hill” that reminds me of Sonic Youth and lends the album its title.
Em Boltz of Corey Flood explains:
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon are one of the Seven Wonders of the World. I have a good friend who’s a life-long pen pal. I have a specific memory of one summer when we swam in the lake by their house. I wanted to encapsulate that moment I had and when I was sitting on their bed. The room had beautiful windows and the way the sunlight was shining through felt totally ethereal.
Hanging Garden is out 9/4 on Fire Talk. Pre-order it here.
