Crooked Flower just released their latest collection on May 23rd, an EP titled “Darkness and Light.” This four-track piece carries a pleasant 70’s style jam band vibe, with a twinge of psychedelic.
Crooked Flower is based out of Berkley in San Francisco Bay Area and consists of Angelina Dang (vocals, keyboard, guitar), Daniel Erik (bass), Dan Ingberman (guitar), and Patrick Shields (drums), percussion).
The Darkness and Light EP is laidback and wistful, with tracks like Moving On, Boyfriend, and Tunnel Of Light, which seem suitable for long car rides or walks on the beach.
The final track, Bells Of Brixton, is a near twelve-minute long composition that seems to sum up the entire EP, pulling it away from its wistful energy and towards a more positive light. Overall, it was my favorite track on the EP for its raw jam band sound.
One of Crooked Flower’s biggest accolades includes their winning of 2015 Song of the Year and 2015 Concert of the Year at Twirl Radio, KUBU 96.5 Sacremento. This group bears resemblance to groups such as Cure, Pretenders, Grateful Dead, Clash, Janes Addiction, and No Doubt.
