Tomato Flower - "Destroyer"

We were getting used to Tomato Flower's indie rock meets off kilter pop sound, and then they go and release "Destroyer." It's not like the Baltimore band have completely changed their sound with this new song, but there's a certain venom in this one that previous songs did not have. It's still an indie rock/off kilter pop song, but Jamison Murphy's vocals are just dripping with anger and angst. If you liked what Tomato Flower have done before, you're still going to love this one. It's a slight change in sound that keeps them being one of the more intriguing bands out there.

Singer/guitarist Jamison Murphy says of the new song:

"Destroyer came out all at once in a period of sleeplessness and turmoil and then was sharpened through collaboration. It's about seeing shadow people, but there's a reversal, and the speaker becomes possessed, becomes the destroyer."

You can watch the video for "Destroyer" below. The song is available via Ramp Local, and can be found through Bandcamp. For more on Tomato Flower, check out the band on Facebook and Instagram.
