Brand new duo Flõstate release debut single “Time” via Lekker Collective.
A sedated downtempo R&B offering, “Time” is the first of many for the Canadian act, who create music building out from intimate jam sessions, producing songs which “happen in the moments that we’re not looking”.

Comprised of songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Avery Florence and producer MKSTNFlõstate embodies a spell-casting, fantasy RnB sound which serves to represent the space in-between moments.

The song is about time as a tangible object. The production evolved over the length of the track, as we purposely tried to fit things that wouldn’t normally go together to mess with the “time” and feel. 

The key instruments and heart of this track is the Morrocan horn (which I impulsively bought in Morocco when I almost died hiking… also the reed broke so the horn lives in this song only forever lol), the Wah-Wah Rhodes, and Electric guitar. A lot of it was experimentation on how to create flow and space between everything, but I wanted it to feel like an unpredictable journey from hopeful and melancholy, to eerie, dark, and mysterious – MKSTN

This song feels like floating – it evokes the feeling of being in a timeless state. I see the themes of this song as an introduction to what Flostate means. The musical contrast of wavy guitar and sharp percussion fuses day and night. Like day and night, you feel time slow down and speed up simultaneously – Avery
