Premiere: HyperFlora make it two for two with second single, Pink
Fresh from the release of their debut single last month, the Melbourne duo score again with their latest.
In the midst of a busy month for new music, there were only a few releases through June that truly stood out, standing out from the pack with its innovation and strength in uniqueness that sets it apart. One of those, believe it or not, was a debut single from a Melbourne-based duo named HyperFlora, who with their debut single Greta Oto introduced us to a two-piece pushing genre boundaries as they mix together elements of indie, electronic, hip-hop and pop; combining the best bits into one three-minutes-thirty of songwriting power that placed them ahead of the game just one song in.
It was a track that put them forward as a duo not content with being placed inside the box, something they place front-and-centre once again with its razor-sharp follow-up Pink. Pink is another track that centres itself around their genre-less sound, taking elements from dreamy R&B and placing them alongside an electronic backbone, which grows in lushness as the dreamy synth work and subtle bass grooves combine underneath Johnny's vocal. "With everything good, there is also inevitably bad. This song is about looking at the positives rather than dwelling on the negative. Your thoughts and what you choose to focus your energy on definitely manifests your reality," the duo say on the track's meaning. "Pink explores our individual journeys of learning to ‘observe’ thoughts and feelings without judgement and the profound effect this can have on the experience of reality. We found that in doing this, it catalyzes detachment from overwhelming thoughts and experiences and allows yourself to experience the romance of everyday life. Through music, we want to express the importance of paying attention to your mental health, through stories our own individual experiences, and turning that into something that is beautiful and nothing to be ashamed of."
It's another sign that just two songs into their careers, HyperFlora is a fully-realised project with meaning and inspiration beyond your typical songwriting outfit, and with much more of their debut album to come (as well as the debut of their live show at Melbourne's Boney on July 27, they're most definitely a band to watch heading into the second half of 2019.
