“For Flostate, as long as time is on their side, they figured they can't lose. For listeners growing restless for more tunes, patience will soon be rewarded.”  – CBC Music

"..entwining captivating soundscapes with spell-binding vocal lines... the airy guitar lines and decisive percussion build a contrasting sonic support that ebbs and flows like a midnight dance between two free-spirited souls." – This Song Is Sick

"Flõstate create a mesmerizing downtempo number with Home Ground. Beginning with gentle chimes and warm piano tones, the song seduces from the get-go, as Florence's sultry and sinuous vocals enter into the mix alongside mellow beats."   Pop Matters

"Creating music building out from intimate jam sessions, Flõstate create songs which “happen in the moments that we’re not looking." - Live In Limbo

Toronto, ON – May 19, 2022 – Canadian fantasy R&B duo, Flõstate, release their debut full-length album, Moments Of Feeling, today via Lekker Collective. Moments Of Feeling is inspired by connecting with others, connection to self, romance, surrealism and etherealism, being in a flow state, as a muse spirit while navigating life experiences. Blending chill, washed-out, electronic, R&B, dream pop, psychedelic pop with meaningful lyrics, the collaborative album uses themes of escapism to in fact, return to our natural state as humans in the universe, taking you through a dream before returning to reality.

"Moments of Feeling aims to capture the depth of our internal world as it’s influenced by the external world we each navigate. Each song embodies it’s own world of emotion, a snapshot of a feeling we try to hold onto, grasping at its depth, only to feel it fade away into memory. The album is a reflection; inner thoughts from a non-egoistic state. The musicality and production of the album breathes a deep sense of aliveness," says group members, Avery Florence and MKSTN. "This album is an exploration of our emotional worlds. Through the lyrics and sound, our music evokes our internal world to the external, the only way to connect deeply with ourselves & those around us."

To celebrate the album release today, Flõstate share a beautiful new visualizer for standout track, My Heart. The textures, images and emotions of the song are mirrored in the visualizer; evoking the song's essence of contrast within soft and gentle between hard and raw.

This fall, the group will perform at Cloud 9 Music Festival in Rideau Lakes, Ontario. Their set is on September 10. Cloud 9 is hosted by No.9 Gardens, Canada’s First Cultural Center for Sustainability and Reconciliation, and celebrates art, food, music, and community with a dedication to a sustainable future. More tickets and info can be found here.

Last month, the group released One More Day In Love, a synth-heavy, fluid and nostalgic piece centred on gaining clarity in solitude. Listen to the song and watch the beautiful visualizer here

On the inspiration for the track, Flostate adds: “Alone, with only your memories and regrets, vivid in the night. It can be painful when we finally gain clarity on something from within our memory. It lies plainly in front of us, what it could have meant for our present if we had known. It’s so visceral, it opens a door flooding in with fantasies; regrets that paralyze you, eyes wide open in the dark.”

One More Day In Love follows the live version of their sedated, downtempo R&B offering, Time, which introduced listeners to the Canadian act in 2020. Creating music building out from intimate jam sessions, Flõstate create songs which "happen in the moments that we’re not looking.Experience Time through a visual of the live rooftop performance of the song here, and a music video for the original version here
