Flowers Taped To Pens

Flowers Taped To Pens are a four-piece emo/screamo band from San Diego, California. The band both twinkly emo bits with screamed vocals, all done through a lo-fi recording sound. I suppose you could describe them as Tiny Moving Parts filtered through Teen Suicide, or something of the sort. Their sloppy, melodramatic sound is irresistible, and for an up-and-coming band have already put out a ton of good material. It quite literally sounds like the band cannot hold themselves together, and are rolling around on the floor in emotional anguish (which could literally be happening judging by pictures of their live shows). If you're into Merchant Ships and friends, this is probably a band you'll want to check out, though they are very much a unique-sounding band. Enjoy.
