FLORIST – ” Sci-Fi Silence “

Posted: June 4, 2022 in MUSIC

Brooklyn-based quartet Florist are releasing a new self-titled album on July 29th via Double Double Whammy. The band shared its delicate third single, “Sci-Fi Silence,” via a video. Vanessa Haddad directed the video.

“Sci-fi Silence” is a love song about the mystical forces that attract us to one another and the spaces in-between words that can hold profound communications,” says singer Emily Sprague in a press release. “It is also a reflection on our impermanence and the acceptance that it is worth it to invite love and connection into our lives even for just a moment.”

Florist is Sprague, Jonnie Baker, Rick Spataro, and Felix Walworth. “Florist” is the follow-up to 2019’s “Emily Alone“, which was essentially a solo album from Sprague.

“The trauma response to losing my best friend, my mom, was to feel really afraid to get close to anybody ever again,” she said in a previous press release. “It’s sort of cheesy, but I realized that life is better when you share it. The answer isn’t to isolate yourself and be alone.”

So Sprague reconvened with the rest of the band to record the new album in Hudson, NY in 2019.

Of the album title, Sprague explains: “We called it “Florist” because this is not just my songs with a backing band. 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.”

Florist previously shared the album’s first single, “Red Bird Pt. 2 (Morning),” via a video for the song Then they shared its second single, “Spring in Hours,” via a fan-sourced video made up of footage from over 125 collaborators from around the world.
