About Florist

Brooklyn's Florist formed around the vulnerable songwriting of singer and multi-instrumentalist Emily Sprague. A frequent collaborator of New York-based indie projects including Bellows and Told Slant, Sprague recorded her first Florist EP, 2013's We Have Been This Way Forever, with guitarist Jonnie Baker and bass player Rick Spataro. Debuting a warm, tranquil lo-fi that balances spare intimacy and more textured reflection, it was followed by a split cassette with Eskimeaux, 6 Days of Songs, in 2014. Florist then signed with Double Double Whammy, which released the EP Holdly in 2015.

After adding drummer Felix Walworth of Told Slant to the official lineup, the quartet released their full-length debut, The Birds Outside Sang, in 2016. It landed on a handful of indie music magazine year-end lists as well as among The New York Times music editors' picks for best of the year. Florist followed it in 2017 with If Blue Could Be Happiness, also on Double Double Whammy. ~ Marcy Donelson
