FLØRE : Superbloom Review
FLØRE is a vocalist and songwriter that creates songs “to give this weird existence a meaning,” says FLØRE. She finds inspiration in the crazy emotions of growing up, the beautifully broken, and the feeling of what it must be like when life begins and what it must be like when it ends. Channeling her feeling like an alien for most of her life, she spent her childhood playing guitar, singing, and dreaming of the universe. FLØRE is a moon lover who expresses loneliness in her songs, her singing telling stories about her own fragileness, devotion for unusual human beings, and broken love. FLØRE’s is now releasing her seven-song album Superbloom.
“Tsunami” is the opening of the music exploration. FLØRE’s soft voice is cradled in a steady pop beat that builds to rumbling timpani sounds. The subtle vocal harmonies and doublings add exciting texture to the vocals. FLØRE’s articulation is very interesting, going from legato to annunciated sounds with ease.
“Dutchman” has a beautiful arpeggiated guitar figure and a fragile, doubled vocal melody. The call and response section of the melody is attractive and adds to the flow of the song. FLØRE’s vocal timbre is tender as the vocal harmonies fill out various phrases to add fullness and variance. Though the guitar part stays constant, there is enough variance in the vocals that keep the song sounding fresh and evolving.
FLØRE offers a breathy soprano voice that, at times, dips into a pleasing mezza range. Her music is soft and moody, with an air of darkness that serves her lyrics well. Superbloom has a consistent theme of witty lyrics and deep personal cameos that instantly are relatable.
