Dead Flowers - "Make It Bright" (stream)

London's Dead Flowers came to be in the winter of 2011, underneath Coney Island's Wonderwheel, an ancient big wheel which still spins to this day.

They started writing right there on the beach, and the songs kept on coming as they worked their way up the East Coast, finally pulling into Montreal, where they spent long nights at the Wheel Club until the spring came and the snow melted.

A year later, Dead Flowers returned to Montreal to make good on what they started and commit these songs to their debut album, Midnight at the Wheel Club, which was released in November 2013. Although there is an undeniable darkness to the songs, sometimes the light breaks through, but never for long enough to break the spell. Think of a slow train crawling through a cold winter and a seemingly unending whisky supply and you won't be far off.

The band will issue the album's next single, "Make It Bright", which was featured in the independent film, Hinterland. The single's B-side is a live version of the album track, "Fences".
