With so many huge acts in and out of our doors, it’s easy to forget those that are out there, tirelessly working their way up to the top who deserve your attention. This week, we’re putting the spotlight on alt-rock collective, flor.
For Fans Of: MUNA, LANY, Pale Waves
Essential Listening: ‘hold on’, ‘rely’
Beginning life in Oregon four years ago, flor have achieved an overwhelming amount in their short time as a band. Signed to the same label as pop-rock heavyweights Paramore and Twenty One Pilots, the band perfectly intertwines synth-hooks with power pop choruses and indie guitar rhythms.
Having relocated to Los Angeles, the band worked hard to refine their sound and it wasn’t long before they were being invited to share the stage with the leaders of pop-rock’s new generation. Halsey, COIN and Grouplove all welcomed them with open arms, whilst tracks such as crisp summery anthems ‘Let Me In’ and ‘Get Behind This’ woke people up to a special new breed of band.
Their debut album, come out. you’re hiding. landed a year ago and firmly established the band as a refreshing and exciting addition to an ever-changing scene. With eyes firmly fixed upon them, they joined Paramore, Mister Wives, Bleachers and more on the road, delivering their appetising sound to thousands across the States. Festival performances followed and their fanbase grew, head over heels with their aesthetic, their music and everything they offered.
2017 was a wild year for the band, but 2018 is going to be a rollercoaster. Having re-released their debut album with additional songs, including the delightful ‘rely’, they’re on track to continue captivating audiences both on and off stage, as Bonnaroo, Firefly and Bottle Rock festivals call their name.
UK fans have been waiting in anticipation for the band to finally make their way over to the other side of the Atlantic and thankfully, the time has come. They'll be joining the brilliant Walk The Moon througout April, so get your tickets and get down early!
