“We’ve gotten where we are by following our instincts, so when we started to record the album, it was important for me to believe in myself and our band,” shared flor singer/guitarist Zach Grace. “Ley lines are these pathways that connect places of power. I was drawn to the idea of these anchor points creating a route: this defining of a journey, and this strengthening through connection. The more we’re able to connect these anchors, the more we can trust ourselves, be unshakeable, and find happiness, regardless of the push and pull of the world around us.”
In that spirit, Grace co-produced ley lines with bassist/producer Dylan Bauld, free of outside influence. Working out of Bauld’s home studio in Los Angeles, the duo crafted the album between several writing sessions with guitarist McKinley Kitts and drummer Kyle Hill. “When we started out, we recorded everything ourselves purely out of necessity, but as we discussed bringing in collaborators, or working out of a big recording studio for the new record, it just didn’t feel natural. Zach and I making music in my living room, with the addition of McKinley and Kyle’s musicianship is the sound of flor,” added Bauld.
flor began unveiling songs from ley lines earlier this year with the March release of “slow motion”, and May releases of “dancing around” and “little light one”. Fans who pre-order the album will receive immediate downloads of all four songs they’ve released. The album’s early tracks were praised by outlets including Ones to Watch, Alternative Press, Earmilk, and Baeble, and prominently featured on playlists including Spotify’s New Music Friday, Apple Music’s Today In Music, and Amazon Music’s Brand New Music.
