The Story:
The Cellophane Flowers are the masters of female-fronted, driving, quirky pop, sometimes styling their sound as “psychopop” in interviews. The Cellophane Flowers songs reflect an eclectic array of influences, from tribal drumming, to alt-rock, to dark tinged 80’s pop and have name checked Siouxsie, Sonic Youth, The Stone Roses and Throwing Muses as influences. Time and again The Cellophane Flowers throw in hook after hook to support the sublime vocals of Francesca Corradini.
The Cellophane Flowers have recently completed the recording of their debut album Staring At The World which is being released digitally on December 3rd 2012. The ten tracks of Staring At The World were recorded and produced by David M. Allen. Dave’s extensive discography covers The Cure, Depeche Mode, Human League and The Charlatans. Mastering was by Barry Grint (David Bowie, I Blame Coco) at Alchemy Studios.
Previous releases include the If I Was A Girl EP, which was played on BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music with Tom Robinson, local radio and numerous radio stations in the US, and the ‘Freeze Me’ single which gained airplay on Absolute Radio, BFBS and Recharged radio.
Praise for The Cellophane Flowers:
Gold Flake Paint - “a fresh-faced blast of subtle art-rock driven forward by the charmingly unique vocals of Francesca Corradini

For Folk Sakes
– “It has a homage to Phil Spector…then morphs into a haze of lo-fi production which is lovely to fall into.

Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music
-“Female-fronted slightly offkilter driving pop from London.
Electric Banana – “Staring At The World is an eclectic collection of everything right within indie music. From mysterious otherworldly swells to the no nonsense drive of honest rock The Cellophane Flowers enlists a great future promise” 5/5
