Luxury Liners

Being on the road is generally not the optimal atmosphere for writing new music. Long drives, loading in, loading out, bad roadside coffee and highway motels have a tendency to dull creative expression. Carter Tanton was able to find inspiration in touring and after releasing Freeclouds in 2011 under his own name, he crafted They’re Flowers while on tour in the U.S. with The War on Drugs and later, Lower Dens. Tanton had plenty of time to experiment with new ways of crafting songs using samples and other electronics, producing They’re Flowers, his first release under the Luxury Liners moniker, one made with absolute freedom.
