TRUE FLOWERS FROM THIS PAINTED WORLD
track, True Flowers from this Painted World is an emotive portrait and
spacious soundscape that builds on traditional notions of landscape
and seascape, combining gorgeous guitar layered compositions and
captivating cinematic fragments. A hypnotic, meditative and
spellbinding live experience.
