The Colliflowers

Byron Bay indie-rock outfit The Collifowers have made a habit of infatuating audiences all along the east coast with their high energy live show since their debut in November of 2021. Pulling elements from legendary influences such as Dire Straits, Pink Floyd and Stevie Wonder, alongside contemporary artists Lime Cordiale, Ocean Alley and Catfish and the Bottlemen, ‘The Colliflower Experience’ is a spectacle that spans generations and genres alike, enjoyed best when served shoulder-to-shoulder in the front row.

The enigmatic pull of the band-turned-best-mates on the stage has contributed to their swift rise, seeing them added to lineups alongside Pacific Avenue, Surf Trash and Lazy Ghost as well as heading down south with Peking Duk, Vera Blue and Cosmo’s Midnight for Festival of the Sun 2022 (before its unfortunate cancellation).

The show must go on however, and in true The Colliflowers fashion, they’re aiming to give the fans what they want with the release of their new single ‘Nighttime Whispers’ in time for summer 2022–23. The release signals a new sonic aesthetic for the group, featuring an immersive atmosphere engineered by fat bass grooves and diverse guitar tones while still holding true to the foundation of luscious melodies and punchy drum tracks that fans have come to expect from The Colliflowers.

With more releases on the horizon, 2023 is shaping up to be another stellar outing for The Colliflowers. 

Be sure to keep an eye on their socials to be the first to hear about new music and shows, and see them for yourself this Friday at the Beach Hotel from 7pm.
