Florence Black Release Video For New Single 'Can You Feel It?'
For the uninitiated, Merthyr Tydfil's Florence Black are a young band of self-taught, childhood friends: lead vocalist/guitarist Tristan Thomas, bassist/backing vocalist Jordan Evans, and drummer/backing vocalist Perry Davies. The group have released three EPs to date, with previous single 'Bird On A Chain' clinching #1 in the UK iTunes rock chart and their belting cover of Budgie's 'Breadfan' landing Classic Rock's Track Of The Week. The band have honed their touring chops out on the road with the likes of Stone Sour and Those Damn Crows and are one of the latest recipients of the PRS Momentum Fund, set up to assist development of new bands at pivotal career moments.
Discussing the creation of the song, frontman Tristan Thomas explains,
"'Can You Feel It?' was written when I was having a rough time in a few personal relationships. It’s written about the feeling you get when you have to sacrifice something you love to get what you want. A lot of the lyrics are very personal to me. Like most of my songs, I like to let the listener find their own meaning to the song. It was written when I was in a dark place, with a lot of anger generated from the voice inside my head. But now when I hear the song back, it feels like catharsis.”
