Brooklyn’s trendiest indie-folk band, Florist has released an epically stimulating music video for their newest single “Sci-Fi Silence”. The song is part of their highly anticipated upcoming self-titled album out July 29 on Double Double Whammy.   The new album is named Florist after the band itself. A curious decision but read on to hear from Emily Sprague, the lead singer why they went with this name choice:

We called it Florist because this is not just my songs with a backing band. 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.” 

Emily Sprague

Florist is the most accomplished and meaningful album of the band’s decade-long career. It’s an immersive work that conveys “the magic of the earth” and was forged through hard work and the whole band’s heart blood to create a musical masterpiece that authentically represents the soul of the band.   

Sci-Fi Silence” is directed by none other than V Haddad. The director created this surreal, out-of-this-world experience that gives off strong retro Star Trek vibes. The almost hypnotic “alien” sounds created with a swirl of analog synth and the angelic voice of Emily takes you on a galactic trip that carries you beyond the borders of our planet. If you are a classic sci-fi fan and have a soft spot for slow melancholic tunes then this is the ideal experience for you. The song is a soul-baring confession packaged in a contemplative new age tune.

Sci-fi Silence is a love song about the mystical forces that attract us to one another and the spaces in-between words that can hold profound communications. It is also a reflection on our impermanence and the acceptance that it is worth it to invite love and connection into our lives even for just a moment.”
