London trio Flowers released their debut album, Do What You Want To, It's What You Should Do, this week (9/9) via Kanine. Produced by former Suede guitarist Bernard Butler, it's delicate, pretty indiepop not a million miles away from The Sundays or the first Cranberries album. The record's many charms make take a few listens to blossom but definitely reward with time. You can check out the video for single "Joanna" and stream the whole album via Rdio below.

You may have seen Flowers at NYC Popfest 2013, and they're returning to NYC for CMJ next month where they've already lined up a whole bunch of shows:

Wed 10/22 @ Cake Shop (Terrorbird CMJ Party)
Thu 10/23 @ Knitting Factory (Dr. Martins Party CMJ Party)
