Stream: Flower Orgy, “Our Song”

February 28, 2013


It might sound weird to say, but simplicity is underrated. On "Our Song," Flower Orgy’s Nate Luce lays down some plaintive guitar strumming and sings, I never see you anymore/ and when I do you give me shit/ maybe that's what living is when you're going for it/ I just want these guys to know that I'm living the dream/ I'm living in the city and I'm making out clean. When he segues into a whole thing about riding a bike near the water and smoking weed, it doesn't feel like anything other than a simple statement of fact—a willingness to be happy and enjoy what you're doing in the face of just about everything else. You could call this a summer anthem, but that implies that there's some deeper mission statement here beyond just extremely appealing easy living. "Our Song" makes a great case for not wanting anything else. Flower Orgy's new 7-inch is out May 14th on Fire Talk.
