HNRY FLWR is a songwriter, producer, and crooner. His 7-piece band is like seeing Nick Cave fronting The Flaming lips. With spiritualizing synthesizers, guitars, Ringo-esque krautrock drums and HNRY’s pension for jumping into the audience, the live show is cathartic and joyful while somehow staying mysteriously earnest.
When their “brilliant” (GoldFlakePaint) debut EP, FLOWERAMA, was released on Paper Garden Records HNRY FLWR kept busy that year, playing 40+ shows in NYC and touring throughout the US. Alt Citizen called their music “melodic, danceable, and devastating.” The breakthrough debut and immersive live shows landed them a tour supporting TEEN in the U.S. and Canada. Locally, The New York Times called them “buzzy” and they responded by landing opening slots for Sunflower Bean, Shy Boys, Renata Zeigur, Grandchildren, Sound of Ceres, Uni, Katie Von Schleicher, and more. The Wild Honey Pie produced a psychedelic Buzzsession of HNRY FLWR they called “intoxicating, hazy music that lifts you off the ground and transports you to another era.”
