“Each track on Swedish electro-folk trio Fredrik‘s newest album, Flora, is adorned with a menagerie of small
details.” – ALARM “Best Album of the Week”
“FLORA definitely has that Fredrik feel…like the Notwist at their duskiest…there’s some room to breathe and sink into this pulse [the band] are exploring. You want to lean in, rather than back.” – Pitchfork

It is an abstract take on palm shadowplay using a vintage British overhead projector, an off-white canvas, scissors, paper, 8 hands and a fishtank full of flammable liquids. The colorations are natural, as it’s a result of the way the lens refracts light at various distances, similar to a prism.
FLORA is the band’s third full length album following the group’s acclaimed sophomore release Trilogi, and is now available on white vinyl. Edited by O. Lindefelt, Fredrik‘s full-length video stream of FLORA, featuring Ylva the wolf on a backwards bicycle ride through the band’s hometown of Malmö,has now reached over 250,000 hits on YouTube.The band made several appearances at SXSW 2011, and will return to the US later this year.
