Hailing from Portland Oregon’s rain soaked streets, Flurries write songs about loving madly, driving gladly and letting go in a style that is reminiscent of progressive rock supergroups and 80's new wave icons.
Michael Johnson; songwriter, bass player and pianist for Portland’s underground pop darlings Camaro Hair, founded Flurries after Camaro Hair disbanded in 2005. Drawing from a vault of unfinished material, Michael began work on an ambitious album along with fellow Camaro Hair drummer Christain Cochran and local producer Stephan Hawkes on guitar.
Flurries' debut is grittier than pop but peppered with hooks that will keep you humming along for days.
The album's big sound is layered with heavy guitars, light harmonies and lyrical storytelling that come together with a weightless, almost ethereal feel. Johnson's emphasis on song craft is ever present, blending these elements of classic rock, 80's new wave and modern guitars into something musically diverse and unusual, yet strangely familiar.
