A bouquet of alternative pop and powerful emotives, the brand new single Flowers from Perth artist Eli Greeneyes, out now, is a warm and intimate step ever-closer to the impending release of the Eli Greeneyes self-titled debut EP, out now. Also accompanied by a feel-good performance music video, Flowers is a pristine and polished delight, an introspective song, bursting with fresh pop textures.
A glistening elaboration of Eli Greeneyes’ increasingly genre fluid trademark sound, Flowers has previously been a track witnessed and beloved at live shows, with the new tune itself also drawing broad inspiration from the likes of Prince, Aretha Franklin, Adele and The 1975. Written, produced and mixed entirely by Eli Greeneyes, Flowers is a raw, warm and soulful blast, equally confessional and empowered, while also showcasing a real-life experience.
Having previously released a string of conceptual music videos earlier in his career, the accompanying music video for Flowers instead showcases Eli Greeneyes and his band entirely immersed in their creative element, performing and giving in to the effervescent track with fittingly cheerful surroundings for good measure.
Eli Greeneyes shares with Hi Fi Way his top 5 places to get a beer and listen to music on the West Coast this summer…
- My favourite place to listen to music in general is on my skateboard, especially at sunset and twilight on a quiet street. I live in Scarborough, Perth so there’s plenty of quiet streets. I feel so free listening to Nina Simone or Aretha. It’s perfect sunset skateboarding music.
- The Rosemount Hotel. It’s definitely my favourite pub. My favourite beer garden for sure. It’s also the middle ground between a lot of my friends and where they live. It has everything that you want in a pub. It’s inviting, spacious, there’s plenty of plants and greenery, dogs, and the food is good. Inside the pub there’s the main room for bigger bands and then Four5Nine for the smaller and more underground bands..
- The beach is another awesome place to listen to music and have a drink here. A whole lot of people have the same Idea to go down to Brighton Beach with picnic rugs on the grass to hang and have a drink when it’s good weather. I personally like finding a beach somewhere that is more secluded away from big crowds. The beach has always been a calm place for me so it needs to remain that way ahahahah.
- The Bird is sick too. Super cool and cozy. Lots of low lit crannys with candles and lamps. Also a great beer garden.
- The Moon Cafe is another one! Great music nights. The kitchen is always open late so you can get a mad meal. They do awesome pasta, pizza and cocktails. Cool diner style booths and table seating outside with cool comfy couches.
