UK indie-electronic band, The Ramona Flowers announce their new single and lyric video, “Dramatist.” The synth-based track is rooted in nostalgia and accompanied by a powerful drum groove. “Dramatist” will be released on March 23rd alongside the pre-order of the band’s forthcoming album, Strangers, out on May 18th, 2018.
Strangers was recorded at The Distillery in Bath, England and produced by the esteemed Chris Zane (Friendly Fires, Passion Pit, Bat For Lashes). The album, including the previously released singles, “Strangers,” “If You Remember” and “Same Sun,” explores The Ramona Flowers’ perfect balance between rock and electronica.Strangers is the sound of a band that has refined their craft through years of experience and experimenting with different styles, while discovering exactly who they want to be. “The idea for ‘Dramatist’ happened on my way to bed,” explains guitarist Sam James. “It took two minutes! I’m not sure what it says about bedtime, maybe I thought an event was going to happen!”
The band also announced that they have joined US booking agency, Artist Group International (AGI) with agents, Pete Pappalardo and Tom Linden at the helm. AGI is a leading live entertainment agency that books an extensive roster of musicians, comedians and sporting events worldwide. Some of their clients include Cage the Elephant, Smashing Pumpkins, Band of Horses and Iggy Pop.
The Ramona Flowers’ notable performances include memorable sets at Glastonbury and Fuji Rock Festival. The group has toured around the world including shows in Europe, Asia and North America, making many new fans along the way – including Bono, lead singer of U2. Bono contacted the band after he heard his daughter playing the pulsing and atmospheric track, “Lust And Lies.” The song caught his ear and he subsequently recruited its producer, Andy Barlow (one half of electronic duo Lamb) to help in the making of the Irish supergroup’s latest album, Songs Of Experience. The Guardian said, “There’s something about this band that suggests hugeness may be imminent.”
