Sydney-based Flowertruck’s debut album, which was released in March 2018, is called “Mostly Sunny”, and there’s not a more perfect description for their ample, radiant synth-rock. Their sound, much like Phantastic Ferniture’s or Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever’s, is distinctly Aussie, with an emphasis on hooks and rock-solid melodies. The band says their album is “a valuable addition to any discerning motorist’s passenger-side seat or glove compartment,” and it is, but it’s also primed for beach-side boomboxes. As you sludge through a lousy North American winter, this record will conjure images of our friends in the Southern Hemisphere soaking up the sun. There’s enough darkness in the world—why not treat yourself to something light and easy?

Enough For Now is the first single from our debut EP, ‘Mostly Sunny’.

Premiering on triple j’ Radio Sydney garage pop four-piece Flowertruck release their new single “Dying To Hear” 
Its the first taste from the band’s anticipated debut album. The single comes as Flowertruck prepare to head out on the road for a slew of festival shows and a Melbourne headline during this March and April.
A hybrid of infectious guitar riffs, singalong choruses and devastatingly honest songwriting, “Dying To Hear” charts the agony of anticipation and an uncertain future. Lead singer, guitarist and songwriter Charles Rushforth says the track “was written in my bedroom one night as I awaited a call from my soon-to-be-ex-girlfriend. My phone kept doing that thing where you think you feel it vibrate, which was slowly sending me a little bit insane.” Taking the track to the rest of the band, Rushforth explains, “we wanted to make something that was big and dramatic and kind of desperate – to match that feeling.”
