Growing up is sad, confusing and often terrifying, yet inevitable. But on Sweet Summer Slam Dance XP, Flowr Pit tells that we don't have to go through it alone. This one man project led by guitarist/vocalist Alfath Arya was started as a personal project on 2016 where he put out a collection of songs on bandcamp and one of his song "23rd Sugarscar" —which he writes about his ex fyi— leaves a deep mark to our hearts not long after. We then worked together to release Flowr Pit's debut EP, our loudest record to this day, and then get the boys to tour afterwards.
On 2019, Flowr Pit release a single called "A Constant Reminder". A vibrant single that is rich on both vocal and guitar riffs. The artwork is done by Nadine Hanisya, an art student who also did the artwork for the EP, where she always portrayed the artwork in a colorful and child-like set up. The synergy between the audio and visual language of Flowr Pit is also one thing that is interesting about it, it is complementary in a funny and eerie way, just like the way his lyrics and music intertwines.
On live set, he would be companied with drummer of Wils, Abi Mulya, the two guarded their own melody and rhythm kingdom by playing incredibly tight. Alfath would crank his two (often three) amps nonsensely loud while Abi bangs his stick as if to break it apart. The energy is amazing and we want you to know that.
