From the ‘burbs of Philadelphia comes indie/emo 4-piece Floorbird. The band’s new EP ‘Fall Apart Anywhere’ will be released on September 25th and they’re giving listeners a taste, with the release of their new single “Navy Blue” which is the follow up to the recent single “I’m Not Nervous.”
Of the new single, vocalist Eric Reavey says, “Navy Blue is one of the more upbeat songs on the record. It’s all about communication issues – how (for me, at least) they tend to be the most intense when we feel hurt or unheard, which are vexingly the times when healthy communication is most important – and the damage that can cause across your life.”
here’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. Having already released the single “I’m Not Nervous,” with accompanying lyric and live videos that have accrued thousands of plays between social media platforms, and spending months refining their tone and style at their home studios, their efforts have all culminated in their EP, Fall Apart Anywhere. With plenty of pop sensibility to sing along to, their debut 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.
