Germander, "a widely distributed plant of the mint family. Some kinds are cultivated as ornamentals and some are used in herbal medicine."
A simple definition of the word used as title to Flame's latest EP. On face value, it's just an elusive sounding word but when you unpack the meaning he gives it and the plant's properties and potential uses, you start to unpack a perspective of self and approach to life. Dropping a 3 track EP for his fans, Flame went onto his Instagram live feed to share in the exhilaration of dropping the project with his fellow government officials of the Wrecking Crew, Ex Global, Ecco, and Mellow.
If you follow the Wrecking Crew closely you will know that they have an affinity for sizeable projects in the truckloads and this might just signal the beginning of an onslaught in 2019. After being taken in by the Bacardi brand last year, joining Dj Speedsta for a leg of their own Bacardi House Party Sessions, Flame's light has been slowly gleaming brighter. Never one to be overlooked, however, Flame proves in just 10 minutes the depth of his music making landscape. His signature dreamy sounds come to the forefront, especially on "One More Night" where his vocal effects take over the whole track. Having explained in the opening of his live video that Germander is about himself as a flower, as well as his girl, you can immediately make the connection of the subjects in the music which lean towards love, sensual conversations, pleasure, and an addiction to affection of sort. Germander is the soundtrack of young, oblivious, strong-headed love fused with the story of a lone traveller who jumps across galaxies in perfect peace as he blooms into his own flower. This precise fusion encapsulates the mystery while showing the easily relatable feeling that you get from Flame on this brief offering. Tap into his world and watch him and his crew wilding out over the release thereafter:
