With the fluttering of the guitar strings and exotic drum beat, alt-pop group L. Flora assures us it’s all going to be okay with their new jazz-flecked single “Poison Ivy”. Merging a future soul sound with suspenseful energy, the group take us through a melodic single for their latest release, pulling on their own well-thought-out imaginative stories and recurring theme of dance and art. Front-woman Millie Khalu glides over the picturesque production in the track and offers us a lush neo-soul harmony that is perfect for late summer nights. Accompanied by a captivating music video, the group push the contemplative song forward and take us to a darkened studio where Khalu performs a moving dance with choreographer Tegan Jeffrey-Rushton, as well as an enchanted forest with Khalu waist-deep in water surrounded by a choir.
Talking about the music video, Khalu expressed, “ I didn’t want any male figures (besides the band) in the music video as this isn’t about a love interest, this is about a battle within myself and seeing me as the woman I am.”
Dropping their EP “Heavenly” earlier this month, the group continue their smooth-riding sound on the project, as they team Khalu’s honeyed vocals with more R&B-inspired flows and displaced drum beats.
