Prescription Pills - "Flowers"

Posted by Chris Cantino on Fri, Aug 12, 2011 at 11:57 AM


Cole Browning has been born again with the latest from Prescription Pills. All evidence on his most recent release, the Graveyaard EP, delineated that an aesthetic transition had occurred, and listeners were particularly taken by the elegiac lyricism and bleak-chic instrumentation. But was this new persona sticking around?

It is decidedly so. What was formerly a hedonistic play-actor's take on '80s industrial punk music has matured into a romantic delusion of cryogenic dark-wave pop with a sophisticated goth bent. You ever dream of Ian Curtis posthumously helming New Order?

New single "Flowers" dramatizes the life cycle of a bouquet as Browning's affected baritone laments a wilting relationship. It's a real pill-popper. The track was recorded at the Wave Cave and is set to be released on the forthcoming Prescription Pills' album.
