According to the press release for Doom Flower's latest single, their music is described as "indie rock, dream pop, anti-folk, slowcore, trip hop." That might seem impossible until you listen to "Candle Habit." The Chicago based band has crafted this chilled out song that still has an odd intensity. It has the groove and chill of trip hop, the noise of indie rock, the warmth and fuzziness of dream pop, the unique folk but not edge of anti-folk, and the darkness of slowcore. It's a sound unlike most of what you know while being made up of familiar elements.
