FLØRE releases new EP ‘ROMANIAC’ and with its title track “Another year like that and we’d all be dead”

Dark pop singer FLØRE has finally dropped her second EP, ROMANIAC, named after a character of this artist that showcased a different side of her—the one who seeks revenge, and the one filled with anger and issues.

Similar to her debut EP “SUPERBLOOM” released last year, FLØRE invited Berlin’s Indie pop artist NOVAA to produce the 5-track release.

About “Another year like that and we’d be all dead,” FLØRE explains that the focus single deals with what life means to her: growing up, losing your loved one, letting go of love, living with depression, and overcoming personal struggles despite the odds.

As the acclaimed German singer-songwriter puts it, the EP celebrates the beautiful tragedy of being closer to death, of being forgotten and nothing. 
“It's so tragic, that it's beautifully sweet,” the experimental pop artist said in a statement. “Because if it wasn’t sweet, we'd all be dead by now. Sometimes, losing all hope is freedom.”
FLØRE's lyrics on ROMANIAC is informed by the pandemic, with its apocalyptic sentiments enveloping every word and visual frame. 
The promising newcomer admitted, “I wanted to capture the feeling of growing up in a teenage tragedy, how everything is rushing in high speed with an apocalyptic taste, but it's a bit too dangerously quite in the chaos. Like the calm inside of a storm.”
The prophetic title track follows FLØRE's latest single “Cigarette,” which focuses on the self-destructive side of romance, and the previous tracks “Dead Boys” and “Bad Medicine” as this artist writes songs to  “to give this weird existence a meaning.”

Feeling like an alien for most of her life, the 25-year old dark pop singer spent her childhood playing guitar, singing and dreaming of the universe. FLØRE was inspired by the darkness of growing up, the beautifully broken and the feeling of what it must be like when life begins. Or what it must be like when it ends. Or what it is at all. She calls herself a moon lover, who expresses the loneliness in her songs, revealing her touching voice telling stories about her own fragileness, devotion for unusual human beings and a broken love.

Since debuting in the music scene in 2018, FLØRE did not only write songs about broken love or dreaming of the universe—she also addresses issues like mental health. 
“Depression is a serious disease which needs to be normalized and talked about, cause nothing kills you like your own mind,” the pop songstress explained. “And I'm so proud and feel so strong writing about mental health. For me it feels like you will never get rid of a major depression. It’s about handling the demons and maybe even becoming friends with them.” 
In an interview with Glasse Factory, the critically-acclaimed young musician pointed out that “It’s okay to be not okay. It’s okay to be sad and to feel alone and to be weird.”

Three years ago, FLØRE made her first mark and garnered an impression of having  the “dark pop brilliance of Flowered Guts” that premiered on The Line Of Best Fit. The track also earned rave reviews from indie music publication Earmilk which describes her vocals as “euphoria that feels timeless and calming.”

Besides getting attention, FLØRE has joined Spotify’s RADAR program, which let her got featured on Playlists like New Music Friday US on top of New Music Friday playlists in 20 other countries, Indie Pop, EQUAL GSA, Indie Womxn, Easy, and many more. Her single ‘Bad Medicine’ went straight to Germany’s Radio Top 200 charts.

In 2021, she played her very first global live stream show on Amazon Music Session and played her first live show at Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg back in September.
