After listening to their songs we know you’re going to want to add them into your rotation. And don’t you know it, but you are just in luck. The Ramona Flowers kicked off their US tour dates with a show here in Los Angeles on March 21 and are now on tour. Snag tickets to all their upcoming shows here.

Fresh from a jam-packed Winter of touring supporting both Circa Waves and Reverend and the Makers, The Ramona Flowers are back with the announcement of their upcoming EP, Hey You, out May 4 via Distiller Records. They recently shared the title track, ‘Hey You”, which is an upbeat, funky mix and long-time fan favorite from their live show. The band say, “‘Hey You’ is about battling with the devil on your shoulder and the side of yourself that always prevails no matter how hard you try. It wasn’t the easiest song to write as it was originally two separate melodies from two different songs but we always knew that they somehow belonged together. One night after a few Guinness’s it finally clicked and it’s been a mainstay in our live show ever 

The 5 track EP, produced by Dimitri Tikovoi, marks their first full release of 2023 and sees them draw a David Bowie influence to the songwriting, particularly “Let’s Dance” with “Hey You.” They note, “we were lucky enough to record the EP over looking the sea in Devon, so the wild seas definitely influenced our vibes! Hey Youis about friends, lovers, parties, the fall outs and ultimately the wars that follow! It sums up the lives of The Ramona Flowers existence.”
