Debut EP 'Ankle Deep'
While Dominique Fricot was relocating to Europe to pursue a career with his band Folk Road Show, Brea Robertson was establishing herself as a solo singer/songwriter, playing intimate Living Room Concerts across Europe. When the two met at an Open Stage in Berlin early 2019, they would schedule the songwriting session that would lay the groundwork for what would soon become Flora Falls.
With both artists bringing years of experience working in harmony driven projects, their two heartfelt voices immediately found a natural blend. After premiering their originals at Berlin’s songwriter hub of Kindl Stuben, artist/producer Lucas Laufen approached the duo interested in recording their first studio effort.
As Brea and Dom’s collaborative songwriting uncovers matters of the heart, their captivating harmonies and honest lyrics inspire feelings of nostalgia, as they take listeners on a journey through memory, love and longing. At the heart of every song is a story that explores the depths of our daily struggles, emphasising the different layers of conflict that are hidden in our lives.
With a sound reminiscent of artists like Angus and Julia Stone and The Civil Wars, Flora Falls makes no attempt to hide themselves behind layers of production. Their sound is raw and minimalistic, accentuating the duo’s honesty and vulnerability.
Flora Falls released their Debut EP 'Ankle Deep' in 2021.
Where the Grass Grows High
Where the Grass Grows High was written while Brea was visiting family members in Australia, in early 2020. After years of being on the road touring, it took time alone on her parent’s farm to realise that she had completely neglected her relationship amidst the excitement of a travelling around Europe playing music. She finally understood that you can’t expect a relationship to thrive without being intentional about fostering and nurturing it.
Where the Grass Grows High was inspired by the realisation that life can easily get in the way of what’s important. Amidst our busy lives we need to be intentional about putting time and effort into the relationships we value, and prioritise adventures into the wild where nothing can disturb you. Lay down in tall grass and hold each other close before the lark sings her morning song.
