In addition to tour dates, Florist have a new single, “Feathers” out now and an upcoming self-titled album drop on July 29 via Double Double Whammy. “Feathers” is a light and springy tune with soft, ethereal vocals, a subtle indie folk sound, heartfelt lyrics and a very humanistic theme.
“This song is a meditation on the cycles we follow all throughout our lives,” says bandmate Emily Sprague. “As individuals, as families, as humans. The motions we go through that stay the same just set in different scenes. The fears and the dreams that sculpt our journey through this experience of life on earth, and our continually shifting perspective along the way.”
Florist consists of Emily Sprague, Jonnie Baker, Rick Spataro and Felix Walworth. Together, this group has made thoughtful, quirky indie music that reflects both their band name and upcoming namesake album; that is music based on the growth, support and collaboration felt between bandmates. Florist comes after Sprague released Emily Alone, which was essentially a solo LP released under the Florist moniker. A culmination of the band’s 10 years together and all the life changes, good and bad, they have been through, Florist is set to be a deeply moving album.
“We called it Florist because this is not just my songs with a backing band,” Sprague explains. “It’s a practice. It’s a collaboration. It’s our one life. These are my best friends and the music is the way that it is because of that.”
