Florist just released their second album, If Blue Could be Happiness. Their simple but moving sound can be credited to being recorded in a schoolhouse in upstate New York, close to where the singer, Emily Sprague, grew up. The lyrics deal with love, hardships and the experiences that come with losing a loved one, metaphorically sang about through mentions of light. The accompanying music is sweet, soft and delicate made by acoustic guitars. The album builds up till the last song, Red Bird, a song that was written on the day of Sprague’s mother's death. The song is undeniably one of the saddest songs but Sprague’s voice adds delicacy and a nostalgic feeling to an experience you might not have experienced yet. It is the perfect album to listen to on lazy sundays or when self-reflecting.
