After sharing a bunk in one of Berlin’s numerous hostels for several weeks, Joakim Jägerhult (drums) and Liam Blomqvist (vocals & guitar) began to share ideas and develop what was soon to become their next project, The Flavians. With the later addition of Anna Vaverková (vocals & keys) and Thomas Wills (vocals & bass), the band began to write together. Drawing inspiration from bands such as The Beatles, Grateful Dead, and The Beach Boys, they set out to join the warm, nostalgic sounds of the 60s with the frantic, hedonistic energy of Berlin. Since then, the band has been touring Germany and gearing up for the summer festival season with their first show at Glastonbury Festival in 2019.
With vocal harmonies from a blend of three diverse voices, psychedelic guitar textures and lyrics discussing themes such as destitution and alienation, they walk the tightrope between the surreal and the mundane while staying grounded and focused on writing accessible, melodic, yet experimental songs.
Their debut album 'Ordinary People in an Ordinary World', recorded at TRIXX Studios, using live spaces with natural reverbs, vintage gear from different decades and of course, Tom's Hofner CT Violin Bass, will be released by the band in 2020.
