unnamed (4)

For most people, being left with a broken arm and neck after a severe bicycle accident is a worst case scenario. For Florist’s Emily Sprague, though, an accident like this lead to something more: the band’s debut album.

Released January 29, The Birds Outside Sang marks Florist’s first full-length album. Beginning with Emily writing and recording while recovering from a serious 2014 bike accident, The Birds Outside Sang has met with critical acclaim from outlets such as Pitchfork who described the album as one that “invites us to appreciate the mundane, to look out at the world and be awed by the majesty and fragility of it all.”
