Florist (Solo)

Emily Alone

Thu 7 May

Florist (Solo)

Emily Alone

‘Emily Sprague’s folk music turns solitude into an evocation of spirits. Her latest album as Florist grapples with change, death, and uncertainty with some of the most arresting songwriting of the year.’ Pitchfork

In association with Rockfeedback, we are excited to present a rare performance from Florist. Off the back of her arresting and critically-acclaimed Emily Alone LP in 2019, Florist’s Emily Sprague will perform solo in the hallowed acoustics of Hall One.

This forms part of a two show residency with Emily; on May 9th she will headline a specially curated showcase by RVNG Intl. the inimitable Brooklyn-based record label who reissued her unfalteringly beautiful Water Memory / Mount Vision records in 2019.

Emily Alone is a collection of songs made by Florist songwriter Emily Sprague during a time of great stillness and isolation with the self. An attempt to capture the dark spaces between changes and acknowledge their beauty. It is a natural, isolated, and momentary tangent away from the otherwise collaborative project that is Florist, while still maintaining the documentary nature of the band that, like all things, is a mutable entity in this universe. These songs, as they exist now, were born partly out of literal distance from her bandmates on the east coast, and partly out of urgency to translate an emotional moment.

Emily wrote and recorded all 12 tracks in her Los Angeles home during the last, rainy months of 2018. After moving to California from New York a year prior, she found herself in a transformative time of self-exploration and independence after leaving the many lives she knew of as home on the east coast to start on a new journey. Living alone and separate from many of the things she once held most close, a deep dive into the dark void of the mind began.
