Man has forever spoken about the desire to never grow from a prolonged infancy in which, petulant and needy, we bawl and scream and take on the appearance of grotesque, gargantuan children. This regression is most obvious when discussing affairs of passion; this is what we become when we cannot obtain those we desire: irrational, clumsy, rasping infants, often with a murderous spark in our eyes. ‘Tiger Lily’, JR Green’s latest single, attempts an honest representation of what it is to be made a loser by longing and obsession, what it is to be weak and bloodthirsty, and all else better left in darkness.

The Flora EP is a body of work compiled of genuine expression. Looking back on these songs now we feel emotions of a mixed variety. Certain passages of lyricism and instrumentation appear to us as written by completely different people. That’s not to say that these songs haven’t served us well. They’ve taken us up and down the country and have bound ourselves and those involved with JR Green together. Experiences pass and become obscured through selective memory. In our fortunate position we have been able to freeze these experiences in songs, songs that make us squirm like eels with embarrassment, songs that make us get up stage night after night and perform with a sense of purpose. We hope to see you in the future, proud and bound together again.
