The Flowers – Origami

Last month Sydney trio The Flowers released sophomore single ‘Origami’ which they described as “an ode to anxiety – social anxiety, insecurity within relationships and a little existential panic to top it all off”. It’s a glorious song full of melody topped off by the gorgeous vocals of Agnes O’Dwyer. The guitars sound great and a tight beat drives the track forward. It’s indie pop with just a smidgen of folk.

After years of feeling like I was made differently, made wrong, I decided to write this song. It was an attempt to try and make sense of my conflicting needs to both be wanted and alone at the same time,” explains O’Dwyer. “The song explores the lengths we go to in order to seek the answers to “‘fix” the anxiety instead of actually, truly listening to it.”
