Artist discography


The flood of strong synth based pop records never seems to end, and that is a very nice feeling. Flor from Los Angeles, California shows with their Fueled By Ramen debut that they are bands to count on clearly. Like St. Lucia, Fun., Smallpools and Vinyl Theather they delivers fresh pop with clear influences from the 80's, but in a modern package.
And as this debut comes out. you're hiding is undoubtedly among the best delivered within the genre the year 2017. Really love their "simple" pop pearls embedded perfectly in Zachary Grace's sensitive and friendly voice. Traces like the romantic and dance-like "Restless Soul", "Heart" and "Guarded" are completely impossible to resist where the band shows how pops 2017 should be performed. Although I think the band is at their best when they are a bit more up-tempo, they are as strong in the more calm and atmospheric "Warm Blood" and "Unsaid".
So if you like this kind of synth-pop then "come out. you're hidin" is a given purchase as it’s a gem from start to finish.

Did you know that?

Pink Floyd´s "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is dedicated to the band´s former leader Syd Barret. Syd used to be the leader...until his schizophrenia and the LSD started to catch up with him, and he became rather insane. The band called David Gilmour, who had given Syd guitar lessons during high shool, and would cover for Syd during concerts, correcting his mistakes and filling in when he started playing along to a different tune. Syd eventually got more and more distanced of the band and David got to be the lead guitarist, but lots of the insanity themes they sing about is related to their former bandmate.
