Florist's "Emily Alone" LP out on 07.26, live at Baby's All Right on 08.03

In line with her emotional and observational tendencies, the artist behind Florist, Emily Sprague, is talking to us and herself about fear in (soft)spoken word, making many references to death and life on earth. "My hair is dirty blonde," Florist begins. ". . . Sleep early, wake early," the lullaby continues. The monologue is visual and representative of the artist's visions as she explores them on Emily Alone. The project, like the track, navigates stream of consciousness ideas with an emphasis on the elemental realm. "If I lose my mind, please give it back to the earth, fire, water, wind, earth, fire, water, wind, and lie down, lie down with me." Florist drifts in and out of song and line, passing between the two like there is no time for anything but also a vast wealth of it. Her mind is in the right place as she questions her body and spirit, waxing poetic and musing ideas.

Of the song, Sprague says: "'Celebration' is a love song for darkness and the peaceful end to all things. A song in three movements: reality, fantasy, memory.  In a lot of ways this song is the thesis to Emily Alone. Minimal arrangements - acoustic guitars, synthesizers, and voice accompanied by the ambient sounds of earth. Birds and water. The song begins with an experience of the now. It falls into imagining the way that things will always return to what they should be.  It ends with a burial of negative forms and the acceptance of a beautiful new path towards growing from nothing."

Emily Alone is available for pre-order now and out on 7/26 via Double Double Whammy. - Susan Moon
