Corey Flood | Down the Hill

Hailing from Philadelphia, 3-piece Corey Flood bill themselves as goth/dark pop/post-punk. Formed in 2017, the trio released their first full-length Hanging Garden this past September.

Their bio tells the story of a band on a quick rise: signed to New York’s Fire Talk records only weeks after their first live show, they’ve got a list of enviable quotes from Pitchfork, Stereogum, Jezebel, Paste and the New York Times singing their praises. Reviews frequently cite Throwing Muses, Helium and other guitar driven pop as influences. The guitars on this track, Down the Hill, take me back to my 80’s Cure fandom, with the standoffish, cooly delivered vocals standing in nice contrast to the more angular elements of the guitars and the churning bass line.

You’ve missed your chance for the gorgeous pink vinyl (sold out), but the album is still available digitally or on standard vinyl from their bandcamp page or their label.
