Pōneke via Arrowtown's flora-obsessed rising star Sofia Machray reveals her debut EP Language of Flowers today, unearthing fresh focus single ‘Crumbs’. Co-produced with bandmate Robbie Pattinson and mixed by James Goldsmith, the new EP centres around motifs of seasonal growth despite anxiety or setbacks. ‘Crumbs’ is a guitar-focused, lilting shoegaze tune whose vines climb dynamically, making us feel like turning towards the night sky for emotional release. Defy the August winter chills and plant yourself at Machray’s forthcoming Language of Flowers tour featuring her full five-piece band of Anna Wild (Jack Panther, Zö), Alex Hoare (Gallery Orchestra), Robbie Pattinson (Sam Wave) and Alfie Parvin (Sam Wave)...

“This record was like writing letters to my future self to help me get through confusing times and modern-day pressures of growing into adulthood. Over the last year of making this record, I found myself subconsciously writing about moving on before the moving on had even begun. I found it interesting that I’d been trying to let go of something whilst still trying to hold on. These moments of self-discovery can be confronting at times, I often find myself turning to nature to help me come to peace with overwhelming feelings.”

'Language of Flowers' is out today on major streaming platforms.
