In 2014, flor released their debut single, "heart." With over thirteen million streams on Spotify alone, this song would pave the way for the Oregon quartet conformed of Zach Grace (lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), McKinley Kitts (guitar), Dylan Bauld (bass), and Kyle Hill (drums).


If you're a fan of coming-of-age songs, then flor is going to rule over your playlists. The band had their beginnings in high school. After their first single, they continued to put out music and each project received . Their journey took a turn in 2019 when they released their album ley lines. With songs like "white noise," "dancing around," and "slow motion," flor began to increase their momentum and earn recognition. Right before the pandemic hit, the band would complete a successful headline tour, and then continued writing songs and finding ways to work together during quarantine.


This year, flor began to unveil their third full-length album titled Future Shine. So far, the band has released three songs: “Play Along," “Skate," and “Big Shot." This album captures the authentic sound that only flor can produced, but packed with the experience of creating music during a unique period of time.


This spring, flor toured with The Band Camino across North America. MUD Photographer Cristi Gutierrez was present at their New York concert in Terminal 5 to give you an exclusive look from backstage and the front row.
