Vinyl Colour: black Release: 2017 Label: LOCKIN OUT Records
Give's Electric Flower Cult 12" (Lockin Out) was recorded during the same sessions that bore the fruit of their last two releases: Sonic Bloom E.P. (Revelation), and the self released Electric Flower Circus album. It comes as no surprise then, that Electric Flower Cult brings the same synthesis of the raw emotion and social conscience of DC's Revolution Summer era, and the shimmering layers of the early 90's Creation roster. Electric Flower Cult delivers 4, as yet unheard songs into the Give repertoire as well as a newly mastered version of the song Electric Flower Cult, each serving as part of an aggregate reminder of the snaking complexity and cathartic highs that Give have made their stock in trade for 8 years running. The Electric Flower Cult 12" hereby signals the end of Give's Electric Flower cycle, but it undoubtably reminds the listener of all the things that made it special.
