THE FLORETS share brand new single ‘QUIET LIFE’ from forthcoming debut album PERMANENT GLOW

Having spent the last few years diligently writing and preparing for their next chapter, Melbourne alt-psych group The Florets are back and ready to share the latest insight to it – new single ‘Quiet Life’.

Taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album Permanent Glow (out this October 1st), the single is instantly catchy: a song that yearns for change and the desire for new horizons. For The Florets, ‘Quiet Life’ is a prime example of how their core sound has developed and diversified as Permanent Glow came to life.

Working with Chris Wright (A. Swayze & The Ghosts) and Alex O’Gorman (Angie McMahon) out of Collingwood’s Sunset Pig Records and Purple Wayne Studios, the band took the opportunity to play around with different sounds and creative influences in the studio. ‘Quiet Life’ stands out with a slightly different vibe to what fans will hear on the rest of Permanent Glow – a result of the production team offering slight nudges of inspiration to the rest of the band.

“‘Quiet Life’ follows the journey of a city dweller living in Melbourne during lockdown, longing for a lifestyle change. I grew up in regional NSW and moved to the city the moment I finished high school. There will always be a yearning to move somewhere with less hustle & bustle again & lockdown really emphasised the desire to move somewhere remote & tranquil. 

We had a lot of fun arranging this song in the studio. Originally the album was pretty electric guitar heavy but our producer Chris Wright suggested experimenting with a theremin synth & trying to chill out the tracks with acoustic guitar lines instead of electric ones which paved the way for how we would approach the album’s overall sound.”

Along with the October release of Permanent Glow, The Florets have also announced a hometown launch of the album, set for Melbourne in November.
