Flora Cash is a duo I’ve been listening to for years. I think like a lot of people, I loved “You’re Somebody Else.” That song was first released in 2017. I don’t know when I found it, but it went into heavy rotation. Followed up with “They Own This Town” and I also enjoyed “Missing Home.” That filous remix is thumbs up emoticon.

Flora Cash is Sweden-based Shpresa Lleshaj and Minneapolis raised Cole Randall. The two connected over music in 2012 and their relationship accelerated to marriage from there.

Let’s have a listen to “Feeling So Down.”

“lay your hoodie to bed at night.” I don’t know, that’s what the lyric sounds like to me.

Oh sad songs hit hard sometimes. “Feeling So Down” is a song for our times right now. Maybe a song about a breakup but maybe also just a song about distance and missing someone. Being apart? I’m banging out blog post while sitting at the computer in the kitchen looking at the snow fall in my suburban town. This song is a nice accompaniment while drinking my coffee and eating some toast.

Go with yourself.

Swedish duo Shpresa and Cole are Flora Cash. They describe the style as akin to Fleet Foxes or Bon Iver. I’d buy that.

Their song is called “Sadness Is Taking Over” and as Cole said in an email the song, “seems pretty fitting for this week after this gutpunch of an election.”

They say the song is “attempting to express inner thoughts and inner feelings in a way that feels less like dialogue between two people and more like eavesdropping on the private voices of their psyches.”


The song is dark, but they seem fun!

It was pouring rain in Vancouver last weekend (what else is new right?).

I dragged my daughter up the Coquitlam Crunch…she didn’t love it the whole way. At one point she was fighting off crying and I pulled a Dad power move… “don’t cry, fight it off.” But then checked myself and went all newage 2016 Dad…”no, cry it out.”

She did, and was all smiles for the walk down the mountain. huh.

Go with yourself.
