New Single // 'Wake Up' Out Now
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.
In the coming months, Flora Falls plan to release a collection of singles that will make up their Debut EP. The next of which is Figments of Love, due for release January 15 2021.
'Wake Up' // OUT NOW!
'Wake up' is the debut single from Flora Falls. The song blends Brea Robertson (AUS) and Dominique Fricot's (CAN) unique, powerful voices as they tell a story of dwindling love. The delicate harmonies and minimal instrumentation take listeners on a journey through memory, love and longing.
Beautifully produced by Lucas Laufen (Embassy of Music) the raw, acoustic production leaves space for the listener to appreciate the song's honesty.
Since the release, 'Wake Up' has been chosen as Indie Folk Central's Song of the Week and featured in Indie Folk Central's Beautiful Calmness playlist. The renowned music blog Conversations About Her also posted about the release, writing that 'emotional single’s meaningful lyrics are set to capture your heart straight away'.
