There’s something special about being able to create in the midst of a crisis. It’s like a rose growing out of a crack in the sidewalk: unexpected and beautiful. Somewhere between the hours of Animal Crossing and wondering what day it is, a Philadelphian indie/emo band called Floorbird was born.
For Eric Reavey, Kevin Folk, Drew Grahn, and Tom Brucker, this project has been over a year in the making – meticulously mapping out melodies, tirelessly recording and creating videos entirely in-house. This would culminate in September 2020’s debut EP, ‘Fall Apart Anywhere’ an emotive and thoughtful collection with splashes of enticing and hooky punk vibes.
Nodding to the likes of Grayscale and The Maine, the rookie record harbors plenty of pop sensibility, but isn’t all comfort food: in 26 minutes, there’s more about mental illness, loss and intrusive thoughts than love. But, in a time of profound separation, it’s a familiar voice desperate for connection. There’s something special about being able to create in the middle of a crisis – and Floorbird is audible proof.
