Seasoned, polished, strange, Flat Land blends psychedelia and folk to create a sound that evades comparison. Violins and electric guitars mingle beneath a voice at once both fragile and strong, amounting to music that sneaks up behind you and mesmerizes. Listening will coax you into dance, thought, and wonder, and you’ll walk away having experienced something positively new — a rare opportunity in the musical world.
The band met while enrolled in the University of Florida’s School of Music and began playing together shortly after graduation in 2012. It’s a credit to the novelty of their sound that in just four years they’ve performed at festivals like Suwannee Hulaween and Okeechobee and toured the east coast of the U.S. twice. What’s more, the group founded a non-profit, Future Music Makers Inc, a program designed to foster and encourage youth engagement with music as an avenue for necessary personal expression. In July of 2016 they released their first full length album, Arrow to the Sun, which can be found on iTunes and Spotify.
