Biography

Since releasing the acclaimed debut album, Night Generation, whose tracks could be heard on anything from BBC radio stations to Swedish National & North American Television trailers, to The Electric Prunes’ radio show, a windsurfing documentary and American Airlines flights(!), Sweden’s modern psych-meisters, La Fleur Fatale, are back with their new album, Silent Revolution, out October 1st on Killer Cobra Records (UK release – November 2nd).

The legendary curse of “that difficult second album” seems to have eluded this band. They’ve come up with 12 new beautifully crafted songs, drawing influences from the psychedelic 60s, classic rock, The Beatles, The Who… while retaining that signature La Fleur Fatale sound of backward guitar, exquisite harmonies, instantly memorable melodies, stabbing guitar riffs, melancholy keyboards, cinematic strings, complex layered production and the addition of some positively Moon-esque drumming from Kristian La Fleur!

The pure psych of the single, “Dare To Lick (Hunter’s Red Sleeve)” and “Hotel of Your Mind” mingles with the California-kissed poppy rock of “The Winding Stairs To Dawn”, “Hung Up On A Dream”, “Pretty Vacancy” and bass-driven anthems “Astral Girl” and “Unreal City”. All of this is capped off with the Zeppelin-esque ballad of the band, “La Fleur Fatale”.

They also recently did a cover of a Seeds song, Travel With Your Mind, to be part of the trubute album to Sky Sunlight Saxon.

These Swedes are starting a revolution that is anything but silent – the return of quality music with an album that continues to bloom on each hearing. It may be autumn, but “Silent Revolution” will instantly colour your world with summer sunshine.

In February 2011 the band did a minitour in NYC and a short documentary was made about the band during that trip. The exclusive acoustic gig they did on the premiere of it was aired on national Swedish radio P3.

Spring 2012 they toured California shooting a 60 min documentary. On that trip they opened for the legendary Strawberry Alarm Clock. The documentary will premiere late 2012.

Lyrics

Night Generation

Written By: La Fleur Fatale

Nighttime vibrations electrify by world. Brings me the levitation of no reverse. Let it shine on the night generation. Let it shine on our casualised minds. Don’t let me down. Elevate me through shadows, we’re night generation. Electrified flowers growing in night neon beams. We’re teenage sophisticates, demons of mistakes and sins. Let it shine on the night generation. Let it shine on our casualised minds. Don’t let me down. Elevate me through shadows, we’re night generation.

Sunshine Underground

Written By: La Fleur Fatale

Electrifying ivy, swallow my dreams day by day. Let all hope deny me. Let the door of perception lead me in. A suffocating feeling, hooks my mind ‘til I lose it again. Let me get it on. Let the door of perception lead me in. Clear light deva, forever trapped behind the dreamy divine sunshine underground. Spellbound and swallowed. Gravity of nowhere is spinning around our minds so mellow. Let the door of perception lead you in. Let me let your real go, let my mind carry you along, liberate your ego and let the door of perception lead in. Clear light deva, forever trapped behind the dreamy divine sunshine underground.
