Oregon quartet flor have announced a new album Future Shine, and given us two new tracks following the first single release, ‘Play Along.” ‘Skate’ and ‘Big Shot’ were released on March 23rd and we can’t get enough of them!
‘Skate’ is a lighthearted, bouncy track that’s the perfect soundtrack for a sunny day. “Take it easy and skate,” urges lead singer Zach Grace. This song makes us want to lace up our roller skates and skate off into the sunset on a warm summer night.
‘Big Shot’ is a harder, more rock-inspired song that features intense vocals and driving guitar lines in the chorus. Extremely different from both ‘Skate’ and ‘Play Along,’ this track shows off flor’s rock abilities and their incredible versatility.
Future Shine is Flor’s third album, after their last two in 2018 and 2019. The album is 11 tracks long, and the band wrote the songs right after quarantine. This project is the most collaborative work that the band had done. It’s bubbly and optimistic, and is packed with vibrancy and hope, which we all need after such a chaotic few years!
From the three singles that have been released, it’s clear that this album highlights flor’s musical range and their amazing ability to cover various genres. We are playing all three of these singles on repeat, and are counting down the days to the release of Future Shine on May 6th. Are you as hyped for this album as we are?! Tweet us and let us know!
