Flowers and Sea Creatures

For Graham Baxter and Kosta Megalos, an Irishman and a Greek who work reclusively in Montreal, disco propulsion and rock melancholy ignite. On their debut – collaborating with producers Ewan Pearson, Fred Everything, and The Revenge – Baxter sings in a grand although occasionally snaky tenor, Megalos programs intricate moods and emotions, and both interject guitars. Flowers and Sea Creatures assemble all this seamlessly on songs like "Kingdom of Los Angeles" and "At Night." On "A.M.," festive and troubled, they tap the conversational gravitas of contemporary Berlin techno with seductive verve. Throughout, they re-color dance and rock.
