We’ve always been fond of Swedish-American folk pop duo Flora Cash and their beautifully evocative, willowy stirring music. Their debut album Nothing Lasts Forever (And It’s Fine) is a stunning listen, and they also proved to be amazing live when they opened for Raleigh Ritchie at a sold out Popscene in San Francisco last spring. So it’s only natural that we’re ecstatic that they’ve released a new song named 18 Dollars. Once again, they send tingles down our spines with their gorgeously husky and wispy vocals on the verdant track. They even tweak their dreamy, spindly sound with a hint of R&B pop a whole lot of heart-string tugging, sigh inducing sentimentality. 18 Dollars is a funereal lament, a profusive elegy for love deceased. Stream Flora Cash on Spotify, here.

We love Flora Cash, and we truly believe this pair of noire folk pop artists from Stockholm are criminally underrated, especially after they released as beautifully haunting a debut album as Nothing Lasts Forever (And It’s Fine). We were lucky enough to see them live at Popscene earlier this year, and their music is just as captivating from the stage. We’re thrilled that Flora Cash has returned today with a gorgeous new video and song named Roses On Your Dress. Its wistful melancholy and sadcore allure brims with smoky magnetism and willowy charm. Roses On Your Dress drifts languorously and tenderly, enveloping us in a world both vintage and classic, cinematic and poignant. We once compaerd Flora Cash to a cross between Lana Del Rey and Lykke Li. We stand behind that analogy, one hundred percent. Roses On Your Dress is anguish and heartbreak, etched out with grace and elegance. If you missed the duo’s debut album, make sure to snag it, here.

Stockholm based folk pop duo Flora Cash blew both myself and my friends away last month when they played a sold out set at Popscene in San Francisco. They were utterly bewitching, as expected, and I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a copy of their debut album Nothing Lasts Forever (And It’s Fine) in the process. I’d only heard great things about the record, and sure enough, I found it enchanting and entrancing me over and over again after I swiftly popped it into album rotation. Today, the pair has unveiled an official music video to go along with their recent Hypem topping single off the record, California. The video, like Flora Cash’s recent advertising partnership with Mexican telecommunications brand Moviestar (which has had over 12 million views in three weeks), makes quite the moving statement about migrant situations and the tragedies that oft accompany them. It’s a riveting and moving watch to go along with California’s lilting folktronica and folk pop, which carries a bit of that Lana Del Rey smokiness and a touch of Lykke Li’s dark poignancy in its willowy ripples. You can order Flora Cash’s beautifully evocative debut album, here.

The words “sadness is taking over” pretty much describes how so many of us are feeling this week after all that has happened in the politosphere and the loss of legendary writer and musician Leonard Cohen. At least we can take solace in the melancholic beauty of Flora Cash’s new sonic offering. The Scandi duo cradles our hearts with ethereal brooding folktronica and art rock on Sadness Is Taking Over, a gorgeously atmospheric number that some have compared to the likes of Mt Wolf, Poliça, Vogue Dots and Kings Of Convenience. I also hear hints of windswept Daughter, woodsy Bon Iver, and woozy Hundred Waters on this colossal tune. A minute pinhole transforms into a wide open floodgate as Sadness Is Taking Over surges from a dusty worn trickle into a gusting squall, overwhelming us with a powerful riptide of emotion. The song comes from Flora Cash’s forthcoming new album. For now, it’s out as a single from iTunes via Swedish label Icons Creating Evil Art.

I’ve always had a fascination for Ancient Egypt and its mythical gods and fabled pharaohs. My interest was naturally extra piqued when I saw that Swedish-American folk duo Flora Cash had revealed a new song named Pharaoh. I’d already fallen many times over for the duo’s soothing folk pop in the past, and Pharaoh sweeps me away on a bewitching ride yet again. Its softly brooding sentimentality, lushly intricate composition, and disillusioned exploration of not truly knowing a lover serve to remind me of Gotye’s hit Somebody That I Used To Know, but gently embedded in haunting mystique. Pharaoh is an artistically gorgeous selection from Flora Pop’s debut mini-LP, “Can Summer Love Last Forever?”, which you can order, here.

Swedish/American folk duo Flora Cash head over the great expanse of the Atlantic this week to play a series of shows and sessions here in the States. In the midst of their busy schedule, they’ve revealed their latest song via a new music video, with which they quickly remind me why I’m such a fan of their dreamy folk pop sound. For Someone is a haunting soother, a romantically dark and pensive gem, one more than capable of thawing the whole wide world out of the snowy freeze within its music video. For Someone’s verdant soundscape and stirring vocals evoke some of Patrick Watson’s beauteous tunes, its gentle guitar strums and enchanting, wistful melody undeniably heart stirring. The song is Flora Cash’s first single from new mini-LP, “Can Summer Last Forever?”, out March 18th. Pre-order on CD or in an exclusive Digisleeve limited to 250 copies, here.

For some absolutely beautiful and swooning alt folk music, we turn to Swedish/American folk duo Flora Cash, who seem very adept at delivering haunting, affecting music. Their recent song Save Me is a dreamy gem, immediately reminding me of both First Aid Kit and Angus And Julia Stone with its plush harmonies and endearing melody. The pair actually met on Soundcloud and fell in love with each other’s music, subsequently meeting up to form Flora Cash. Since Save Me, Flora Cash has unleashed another exquisite, melting song named This Breeze, which you can stream below. Flora Cash will be releasing an EP late summer/early fall, and I have a feeling it’s going to be gorgeous. Purchase Save Me, here, and This Breeze, here.
