Anders als bei seiner für schmissige Indiedissen-Tanzflächenfüller-Hymnen (remember „Chelsea Dagger„?) berühmt-berüchtigte Hauptband The Fratellis geht es Namensgeber Jon Fratelli auf seinem zweiten, im Februar erschienenen Solo-Album „Bright Night Flowers“ etwas gemächlicher an. Die darauf enthaltenen neun Stücke vermengen Elemente aus Folk, Country, Indierock und Blues zu einem (obendrein von Streichern durchfluteten) nachttief-melancholischen Ganzen, sodass der 40-jährige Musiker aus dem schottischen Glasgow rauchigen Barkaschemmen, in denen gerade noch die Grübler von I Am Kloot auf den knarrenden Bühnenbrettern standen, näher scheint, als der wilden Rock-Sause an einem Festival-Nachmittag – bestes Beispiel: der Titelsong. Feine, runde Sache, das.

 

 

„Bright night flowers ask the dust
Make them ours and blame the rust
Stealing every vacant candle when the city’s eyes are so deep
Falling in and out of love just to sing the twilight to sleep

When the false alarms and eyes collide
Walk with liars by their side
A thousand Juliets driving every boy out of his mind
Crying in the rain wishing she was still the first of her kind

And how do they ever forget they got it wrong?
Why do they never regret they took so long?
And I wish that I’d never tried to be on their side

Bright night flowers paint them blue
Sweep the dust for me and you
Stealing every vacant candle when the city’s eyes are so deep
Falling in and out of love just to sing the twilight to sleep

When the false alarms and eyes collide
Walk with liars by their side
A thousand Juliets are driving every boy out of his mind
Crying in the rain wishing she was still the first of her kind

And how do they ever forget they got it wrong?
Why do they never regret they took so long?
And I wish that I never tried to be on their side…“
