Florists’ new song ‘Feathers’ is about ‘the fears and the dreams that sculpt our journey’

Brooklyn quartet Florist have shared a new single, “Feathers.”

The track serves as the final preview of their forthcoming self-titled album, our July 29th via Double Double Whammy. “Feathers” is an intimate new single with soft acoustic guitar lines and hazy vocals. With emotional melodies and haunting guitars, this track is sure to move you.

“This song is a meditation on the cycles we follow all throughout our lives,” singer Emily Sprague explains. “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.”

Listen to “Feathers” below.

“The trauma response to losing my best friend, my mom, was to feel really afraid to get close to anybody ever again,” Sprague adds of the album. “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.”

Thus, Sprague chose to reunite with the band to record the album in Hudson, New York in 2019.

The reason the album is self-titled is “because this is not just my songs with a backing band,” Sprague says. “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.”

In addition to “Feathers,” Florist features the previously released “Spring in Hours” and “Red Bird Pt. 2 (Morning).”
