If Blue Could Be Happiness is the second full length album from soft-synthesizer-folk band Florist. It is an observation of change; a full color memory album. It is both a goodbye to a past life and a declaration of great love to a new one. A long mourning song for the death of a mother, and a quiet celebration of the end- less struggle that is being alive. Recorded by the band during May of 2017 in an Upstate New York school- house very near to where songwriter Emily Sprague spent her childhood and where the band originated. The nal track of the record, “Red Bird”, was written and recorded by Emily on the day before her mother died unexpectedly in March of 2017. The song remains in demo form on the album just as she had heard it.
