On her third album, Emily Sprague is sitting by the ocean, taking walks, tending to her plants, daydreaming. She's feeling peaceful and existential and acutely aware of every source of light in the house. The previous two albums from her indie-pop outfit Florist were full-band affairs, but in these 12 songs, Sprague steps away from her collaborators for a spell, tasked with filling time alone.
Around the time of the release of 2017's If Blue Could Be Happiness, Florist singer/songwriter Emily Sprague suffered a series of personal ordeals including a breakup and the unexpected death of her mother. She subsequently relocated from her home state of New York to Los Angeles. Isolated from bandmates and taking a break from Florist, she worked on music at home on her own, ultimately releasing two ambient synth instrumental albums under her own name.
