Into The Light By Crooked Flower Wows Me Into Nostalgia

29 Oct

Anyone who takes a listen to Crooked Flower should be ready to fall in love with vocalist Angie Dang’s voice and the power anthems of the guitar, bass, and drums of classic rock. The band’s overall sound is a perfect mixture of 90s rock, funk, and a dash of pop punk. The album, released intentionally on Canada Liberation Day makes an additional statement about the band and their strong beliefs. Let You Go is a powerful song on their album reminding me of Natalie Imbruglia, Linn Berggren, and Sixpence None The Richer all in one. With a variety of themes from track to track, Into The Light showcases the multi-dimensional sound Crooked Flower delivers. Originally starting out with Daniel Erik and Dan Ingberman, the band evolved with the joining of Patrick Shields and Angie Dang. With the raw and organic sound of music sometimes being overshadowed by auto tuning and editing, Crooked Flower keeps their sound real, simplistic, and characterizes everything found in a band that has their music speak for themselves.

Crooked Flower Proves Grunge Rock Is Timeless With Newest EP Darkness & Light

6 Jun

Crooked Flower brings their rock and grunge sound to light in their album Darkness and Light. With lyrics that are reflective and full of grit, listeners will find that their sound is very similar to Natalie Imbruglia, Paramore, No Doubt, and a dash of vocal talents of Amy Lee from Evanescence. The casual style of writing and vivid descriptions through the four track EP draws you in and keeps you listening. A standout lyric within the album includes “I still see you, still I see you there, I don’t need you, I don’t even care”. The vocal talents of Angela Dang and the musical arrangement together yield a standout and distinct sound that is distinctively Crooked Flower. Overall, Darkness and Light brings that 1990s grunge rock and 2018 embraces that with open arms.
