We’re delighted to be working with Florry for the first time!

Florry are a Philadelphia-based country rock outfit led by Francie Medosch and featuring a cast of the most daring and tasteful players of the underground. Francie’s songwriting is pointed, personal and current, yet arranged with a keen ear toward the canon of late 20th Century outlaw country and rock n’roll.

‘Philadelphia singer-songwriter Francie Medosch’s band combines the weepy twang of old-school country with the cozy intimacy of DIY rock’ – Pitchfork

Local support comes from Tragicomics. Tragicomics are an alt-country collective from the north west of the UK, and self-professed purveyors of sharply crafted pop songs, sweeping melancholy and doomed romanticism. Since 2017 Tragicomics have been writing, recording and releasing what the Quietus described as ‘widescreen English Americana’. In 2021 Tragicomics released their second album Book of Want, drawing favourable reviews and comparisons to My Morning Jacket, Wilco and Blitzen Trapper.

At the end of 2023 the band released the double single Hopeless Romantic/Stranger Things, featuring artwork by award-winning painter Jude Wainwright, and were named UK Artist of the Month by the Vinyl District. Now the five-piece return with new single Dinosaur. Like previous releases before it, Dinosaur continues to highlight the band’s versatility and their refusal to be easily defined. Across its six minutes the track encompasses haunting acoustic ruminations, melodramatic strings, spoken word poetry and a searing electric guitar breakdown, all shot through with a self-eviscerating lyric about time, age and expectation.
