about

VWAM’s second release, Les Fleurs du Mal, was social-distance recorded during the Spring and Summer of Covid19. As Vancouver went into full shutdown, flowers began to stand out boldly in the midst of unfamiliar absences. A dark mood hung over the riot of their brilliance and among them lurked stingers, poisoners and mad stranglers with bewildering perfumes that lured susceptible admirers to their doom.

The tracks that make up this album were collaged together remotely from material collected through file-sharing and occasional duo recording sessions and feature feral vocals and hand-made percussion as well as VWAM’s usual synthesizers. Each track evolved over several months and is distinct yet complementary, a world unto itself, like the flowers.
