The songs of Michael “O” Olivares (of THE MANTLES) get deeper and more beautiful as tears go by. With this new single he is teamed up again with producer Edmund Xavier, & with players from The Mantles and The Oilies, pulling off winding & jangling folk-rock ballads tinged with flecks of art rock and psychedelia. All songs land somewhere between Jacobites, The Pastels and Kevin Ayers for another klassic Fruits & Flowers unpopular pop hit single.
