Before I even hit play on Club Hula’s latest single “Flower Girl” I was already enamoured by the fact there are artists out there with the intent to create “sad, naïve love songs”. When I’d immersed myself in the 60s surf-inspired Indie Pop track, I realised that the naivety of amorous music is so much sweeter when it is ironically used.
The Oslo-based solo artist’s sound may drip with kaleidoscopic vintage colour, but the psychedelic textures have been contorted into a soundscape which revives the hazy melodies into ones which exude massive amounts of contemporary appeal.
Flower Girl was inspired by the frustrative lornness of catching a glimpse of someone that continues to evade your thoughts long after they’ve disappeared from view. The sticky-sweet sentiment definitely didn’t fail to resonate.
You can check out Club Hula’s fourth officially released single for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
