Flirting. are an anxiety-pop band who formed somewhere around the start of 2016 in East London.
Whilst they might have come together originally for their collective love of an eclectic array of music, noise and Vine compilations, it would soon become apparent that it was more of a group therapy project, set to a Sofia Coppola soundtrack.
The band's debut fuzz-laden single Wouldn't You was warmly received, with its later video seeming to become something of a briefly viral hit on Reddit (much to the confusion of everyone involved). But there's a lot more to the band than fuzzed out shoegaze - live they've become known for their distinctly interwoven guitars, multi-narrative lyrics, and textured rhythmic songs. With a constant desire for experimentation with the unexpected (as well as an urge to enforce hearing protection) driving the band, their play with dissonance and the idiosyncratic come together to make a lush soundscape within which the band thrives. Their forthcoming EP sees the band carve out their own distinct shape in all that city noise.
