Seattle-based Pacific elites The Flavr Blue will release their sophomore album Blue Dream this Friday, October 27th. In anticipation, they share an exclusive stream with Billboard Magazine today. Fronted by Grammy-nominated Hollis Wong Wear, the album finds producers/vocalists Lace Cadence and Parker Joe triangulating between pulsing electronic pop, chilled out R&B, and melodic hip-hop. The result is arguably their most compelling and artistically honest work to date.
The band previously revealed album tracks “Fetti & Spaghetti” with Complex and “Picture Perfect” alongside an in-depth interview with The Seattle Times. Much like its namesake, Blue Dream provides a relaxing high and a subtly invigorating rush, highlighted by punchy electronics and rooftop-ready West Coast hip-hop. The 14-track collection boasts a fluid cast of all-stars including The Last Artful, Dodgr, YMTK, Jay Park, Cha Cha Malone, and Sweater Beats.
In celebration of album release, The Flavr Blue will play a release show in Seattle this Friday, 10/27 at Easy Street Records followed by an NYC show on 11/13 at Piano’s. Be sure to catch their kinetic live energy in a city near you + stay tuned for more coming soon!
