Brandon Flowers

Brandon Flowers was the most popular frontman of the new wave revival, which swept through America and England during the early 2000s. As frontman of the Killers, he helped popularize a genre that hadn’t been fashionable for nearly two decades, drawing influence from a number of '80s synth pop bands -- including New Order, Echo & the Bunnymen, and the Psychedelic Furs -- while writing the songs that comprised his band’s multi-platinum debut, Hot Fuss. Flowers also proved to be a super-sized media personality, gathering headlines for his clothing choices (which ran the gamut from neatly tailored suits to bizarrely feathered shoulder pads) and controversial, outspoken opinions on rival bands. Although the Killers retooled their sound with each album, the group rarely subscribed to convention -- and Flowers, who launched a solo career in 2010, seemed happy to be the most unconventional of them all.

Flowers grew up in the southwest, spending his first eight years in the Las Vegas suburbs before moving to Utah with his parents. He returned to Las Vegas several years later, where he finished high school and landed a job working as a bellhop at the Gold Coast Hotel. He began spending his free time playing keyboards in a synth pop band, although he lost his position in the group when his bandmates all relocated to Los Angeles in 2001. Flowers remained in Las Vegas and began working with local guitarist Dave Keunig, with whom he pieced together a new band that relied on guitars as much as keyboards. The Killers’ lineup was officially cemented in August 2002 with the arrival of bassist Mark Stoermer and drummer Ronnie Vannucci, and their glossy debut album -- released on both sides of the Atlantic in 2004 -- made the Killers one of the decade’s biggest pop bands.

With their open-armed embrace of synthesizers, icy atmospherics, and other trappings of the '80s, the Killers were placed into the same retro category as groups like Franz Ferdinand and the Rapture. For the band’s second album, though, the guys shifted their focus to the heartland rock & roll of Bruce Springsteen. Released in October 2006, Sam’s Town found Brandon Flowers modeling his performance after the Boss and Bono, and the album (although not as popular as Hot Fuss) went platinum across the globe. While on tour the following summer, Flowers had his first son with wife Tana Mundkowsky, whom he’d married two years prior.

After releasing a rarities compilation, Sawdust, in late 2007, the Killers began working on a third album. Day & Age arrived in November 2008 and became another worldwide hit, with “Human” hitting the Top Ten in several countries. Flowers’ second son was born while he was on the road in support of Day & Age, and his mother passed away in early 2010. Both experiences inspired him to keep writing, and he decided to launch a solo career later that year while the rest of the Killers enjoyed a short hiatus. Flamingo, his first album of solo material, was released that fall. ~ Andrew Leahey, Rovi

Brandon's a Mormon, and so am I! I love this song and his whole solo album!!!!
He's Mormon I think
ryan.grier99
I just love anything Brandon Flowers does
Don't bash the other albums. They sold many copies and spawned singles too! Just because Sam's town didn't sound as wild/sexy as Hot fuss doesn't make it s**t. Day & Age was a beautiful album. Listen to the effort that is put into each song. They are one of the most recognizable bands in the UK, Europe and most of the US. Victim for life.

I adore this song...love the alliusions to the devil and triumphing over him.
i like his music!!
Brandon is awesome!!
To be able to stay current for more than a decade is amazing - Let him evolve and just enjoy

A Mormon from Utah. Sounds about right.
sha_angelico
I agree with Darrell...I can't help but notice how dramatically different 'Somebody Told Me' is from some of the later stuff that was (over)played around here. Songs like 'Human' (Are we human/or are we dancer...), 'Read my mind' and 'When You Were Young' sound like they came from a completely different (and rather bland) group. I know bands evolve but, seriously, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

But Brandon is kinda hot so I guess that helps. Somewhat.
Have to agree with Darrell (below). Hot Fuss is a great album. But with one or two exceptions, everything following has been meh. The performances are good, no argument that Brandon Flowers can sing, but the material is Boring! Sounds like a guy from the suburbs singing about his wife and 2.5 kids.
Brandon was amazing going solo. It showed that he not only talent with the band but on his own too. His solo album was really a hit to the heart with me. It shows us who Brandon Flowers is. I liked it and i like his band too!
LOL that guy below me.

Anyway, you're pretty talented, Brandon, just please keep doing The Killers with the other guys as well.
He is Mormon or a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints so he rocks!

The Killers: What a fantastic debut album... and then an ever increasing, utterly disappointin g , succession of over glorified tripe. At least I still have HOT FUSS.

Brandon is the coolest mormon I've ever seen!
Brandon is one of a kind, I love his solo album:) He's AWESOME!
His voice touches me where no one else ever has
He is perfect in every imaginable way.
I love him
I really love the Killers and all, but man, this album tops any that the group ever released. Magdalena and Jacksonville really stick with me.
