Woods continue their campaign of releasing singles in pairs leading up to the new album, Perennial. “Little Black Flowers” finds the band in a pastoral place — burbling backup vocals circling Jeremy Earl’s honeyed croon. The songs is framed by strums and lightly knotted guitars. Lifting the song into the skies are billowy swells from John Andrews’ keys. The Yawns member has become a permanent fixture in Woods for this album and his contributions have definitely added shading to the record. The song’s light touch is a refreshing counterpoint to some of Woods’ darker tones over the last few years. The song has a feeling of contentment that invites the listener to lay down and dream for a while. Accompanying the release of the single is “Day Moving On.” The new record, Perennial, is out September 15th from Woodsist.
