Sublieme indiefolk van eenzame klasse
With a self-titled third album, Florist officially broke out of the enthusiast corner this summer. The great soul winner? Songs that sound like a warm embrace, from as small as a diary entry to as big as an epic movie arrangement. But there is always a common denominator: fragile solidity, and the reverberating beautiful voice of Emily Sprague. No wonder you quickly make a comparison with Big Thief or Bon Iver’s previous work: Florist has been able to distinguish itself for years with the best in the genre. In the spring of 2023 you can dream away in EKKO.

Sophie Janna fell in love with traditional Scottish folk while living in Edinburgh for a while. You can hear those influences well in her warm, sensitive songs, with which they try to escape dark thoughts. After five albums with traditional folk, including four with her duo The Lasses, and one solo, a first collection of her own work was released at the end of 2021: EP Wide World.
