Premiere: Hnry Flwr “Little Brother”

Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter, Hnry Flwr is preparing to release his debut EP, Flowerama on June 16th. Surviving the Golden Age is excited to premiere the single “Little Brother.” Opening with a guitar line that sounds like a chopped n screwed version of The Pixies‘ “Where is My Mind,” the track is an earnest ballad with tinges of country, shoegaze, and even a little “Free Bird.”

Lyrically, “Little Brother” deals with bullying. Of the track Flwr says “Often the first time a child feels empowered is when a younger sibling comes into their life. That power can be intoxicating– before we understand how dangerous it can be. Young humans grow up and they have to deal with the regret of bullying their younger peers, or they are compensating for their being bullied. Most kids grow up and have to deal with both those things. The reflection conjured by this song is meant to help one to move through that regret and helplessness.”

It will be interesting to see if the rest of Flowerama can match the beauty of “Little Brother.”
