Florist began life as a way for Emily Sprague, Rick Spataro and Jonnie Baker to become friends by making noises with synths and guitars. As the trio grew close Florist became a more serious band, touring with Mutual Benefit and Told Slant. They were eventually joined on drums by Felix Walworth of Told Slant. The Birds Outside Sang began after Emily was knocked of her bicycle. Injured, her ability to play keyboards was limited, however, this limitation spawned the first half of the album with Emily making music on her own. The whole band reconvened to record the second half live. Available on coloured vinyl LP and CD on Double Double Whammy.
