Rising Seattle Trio Selected As Part Of “Essential Up-And-Coming Artists” List
November 6, 2013 - The Flavr Blue, the rising Seattle trio with “catchy beats, stunning breakdowns, and beautifully soaring vocals” (Esquire), have been tapped for Google Play’s Antenna playlist, highlighting “essential up-and-coming artists.” The group joins other much talked about artists like CHVRCHES, Active Child, TEEN, Russian Circles and Red Fang on the list. Google Play chose “Hearts Racing” for the playlist, a downtempo toast to a flamed out relationship from The Flavr Blue’s new Bright Vices EP.

The group is a rising light in the Seattle music scene, drawing praise from outlets like Complex Magazine, The Stranger and Seattle Weekly, and recently stopped by KEXP to tape a session. The Flavr Blue also played on premier stages at this year’s Bumbershoot Festival and the Capitol Hill Block Party, headlining the Neumos stage. Additionally, The Flavr Blue member Hollis has received a great deal of recognition for her work on the latest Macklemore & Ryan Lewis hit "White Walls," on which she supplies the song’s infectious chorus. She’ll join the duo for their three headlining shows at Madison Square Garden, November 13-15, and The Flavr Blue will perform at Mercury Lounge on November 15th.
The Flavr Blue came together when Parker and Lace were working on some new music that was inspired by the bold, hypnotic sound of Scandinavian electronic artists. They invited Hollis to guest on a cut, but the chemistry was so immediate that the three begin writing what would become The Flavr Blue’s debut LP Pisces. Each member of The Flavr Blue has deep roots in Seattle’s hip-hop scene – Parker with State of the Artist, Lace with Clockwork and Blast Off Productions and Hollis with Canary Sing.
