Having initially banded together in their shared search to find the sweet spot between rock and electronica, The Ramona Flowers have progressed through two albums – Dismantle And Rebuild (2014) and Part Time Spies (2016) – to their finely-honed third long-player, Strangers. Their most electronic and dancefloor-ready offering to date.
For Strangers, The Ramona Flowers employed a new creative modus operandi of the collective members writing separately, using computers and synthesisers, before bringing the songs to the rest of the band in the studio to complete as a team. Hence the music’s more electronic focus. “These guys don’t pick up their guitars any more,” laughs Bird. “It wasn’t a conscious decision. It was just the way it naturally progressed. We’ve always been going that way.”
