These Flowers of Ours – The Asteroid No. 4

Listen here:

I just stumbled across this song the other day. Very cool, very retro and yet, brand new (reasonably)! This band has seemingly blended all their favourite elements that made the 60’s such a watershed in musical history. The album pretty much covers every aspect…folk, Brit,psychedelic and pretty much anything else you can think of.

Lyrics here, more below:
Another year comes to a close
Its deeds, its memories
And its shows
Stay in bed
Never mind the day
There’s nothing much more to say

I love to watch you lying there
With the sunlight in your hair
We gather round the ivory tower
These flowers of ours

There’s a power in the setting sun
Seasons change and the years dissolve
The morning glories stop the day
There’s nothing much more to say

I love to watch you lying there
With the sunlight in your hair
We gather round the ivory tower
These flowers of ours

Open windows allow the breeze
I want to hold you if you please
We celebrate the ivory tower
These flowers of ours

I had to riot
For so long
A shield of hope
To keep me warm

Another year comes to a close
It leaves its memories
And it shows
Stay in bed
Never mind the day
There’s nothing much more to say

I love to watch you lying there
With the sunlight in your hair
We gather round the ivory tower
These flowers of ours

Open windows allow the breeze
I want to hold you if you please
We celebrate the ivory tower
We celebrate the ivory tower
We gather round the ivory tower
These flowers of ours

Okay, so this might not be the deepest song you’ve ever heard. If you are looking for something spiritual or something that cuts to the heart, never mind. But if you love that floating, light, happy hearted, life-is-good kind of retro ditty, welcome! It is true to the roots of this brand of music and really that’s what you want from this kind of song. These guys will never storm the charts but they are good to hang around with on a sunny day with the light buzz of some weed on! <– Disclaimer: I would NEVER touch the stuff (honestly, never have) nor would I condone this as a way of life but if you are so inclined, I won't hold it against you!
