Crooked Flower Channels 90s Sound In Around & Around

17 Mar

Crooked Flower showcases one of their standout tracks Around & Around from their 2018 released album Into The Light in their latest music video. With Angie Dang’s strong vocal talent, one can see how Crooked Flower is getting recognized via over 160,000 plays on the music video. When you think of the influences the band has had the following bands come to mind in sound and vocal style, No Doubt, Cheap Trick, and Lemuria. “You left me all alone, left me sitting on the side of the road” showcases just a little bit of the complex aspect of being half in a relationship and half out. Around & Around carries psychadelic visuals that make sense as you ebb and flow through the band in the video, thus making them intentional for the audience’s visual experience. The instrumental finesse of the accompanying talents of Daniel Erik on Bass, Dan Ingberman on Guitar, and Patrick Shields on Drums & Percussion all highlight the overall musicianship the entirety of the group possesses. 2019, watch out for Crooked Flower they are ready to take the rock and roll world by storm.

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.
