NO FLOWERS is the latest creative endeavor from longtime musical collaborators, Jebb Riley and Thomas Moses. Having previously played together in Disappearer and There Were Wires, Riley (who plays bass in Boston's Doomriders) enlisted Moses to help flesh out a batch of songs he had been writing for which there was no band. The songwriting sessions were productive yet offered a new challenge to the pair: all instruments would be played by the duo. NO FLOWERS sees bassist/singer Riley on guitar for the first time in a band and Moses, in addition to guitar, adding drums to his repertoire.
The duo blend their experience and influences together to form something new yet somewhat familiar. Their songs range from dense to spare, uplifting to melancholy, but even in their most discordant moments, hold tight to melody.
EP ONE is the first of 3 EP's that NO FLOWERS will release over the coming months.
