Florist feels like the culmination of a decade-long journey, their fourth full-length album, but the first deserving of a self-titled designation. “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.”
Florist is Emily Sprague, Jonnie Baker, Rick Spataro and Felix Walworth.
“Their sound, usually soft and steady, becomes a thrilling lesson in catharsis (an evolution not dissimilar to that of peers Big Thief)”
“weaving together found sounds with spontaneous music-making, the quartet’s self-titled album is as much an audio documentary as it is a folk album”
