Soundcloud sweethearts Flora Cash are back to deliver a new, melancholic and stripped offering called ‘Don’t You Look At Me That Way.’ As put by Earmilk, Flora Cash are frontiers of a new movement in pop that is centred on unadulterated emotion. Following on from previous single ‘Soul Mate’, it’s needless to say their latest track will be one that gets you right in the feelings.
Written from the point of view of someone experiencing a psycho-spiritual crisis, the single is filled with nostalgia and reflection, describing the individual’s fears, insecurities and the need to be seen by her partner as she is, not as he wants her to be. Finding comfort only in her memories with the person she loves most in the world, her soul yearns to rekindle the unbreakable and non-judgmental bond that transcends all fear, pain and doubt.
The instrumentation gives wings to the track’s meaning. Led by soft acoustic guitar accompanied by dreamy injections of piano and lingering backing vocals, the arrangement gradually grows throughout, becoming an increasingly cathartic opus. Teamed up with Shpresa’s distinguished and haunting vocal, the lyrics exude fragility whilst plunging the listener into new depths of emotion; raw, naked and imperfect.
Speaking of the new single, Flora Cash commented:
“’Don’t Look At Me That Way’ is written from the point of view of someone experiencing a psycho-spiritual crisis; a dark night of the soul. The only comfort she finds is in the memories she shares with the person sitting across from her; the person she loves most of all in the world. And she’s asking this person to really look at her; not a projection of what that person wants her to be, but the real Her. She doesn’t want to be saved, only seen.”
slovakia headcanons!! :D most of these,,, probably won’t go along with what other people think haha.
his name is miloš bielik. i poked around for quite awhile to find something that i felt “fit” him.
his birthday was originally october 28th, but he has faced “pressure” to change it to january 1st. he doesn’t care as long as someone acknowledges his birthday once a year. but,, hehe,,, its just a h/c. what a shame if he,,, actually shared a birthday with me,,
he is the type to have a lot of change, and will also spend five minutes trying to pay in exact change.
that’s actually the only reason czech tends to pay when they go anywhere. she’s a tad impatient. the question is if he pretends to search his person for the correct amount in order to get out of paying.
the answer is sometimes he does.
miloš loves to say that he is strong, and will stand up for himself no matter what. the reality is that it depends on if he thinks it is worth it.
he is very fond of wild animals. loves sparrows, bears, and fish. very happy with his national animal.
speaking of, it came as a shock to czech, but he keeps plants. did it take a lot of trial, and error? yes. did he learn that he has to set a reminder to water the plants? also yes.
favourite plants are roses, various ferns, and cacti.
prefers casual clothing over suits. he still acknowledges, begrudgingly, that sometimes he has to dress nicely.
he is very “grey.” meaning, a lot of things depend on his mood, and surroundings, and can come as a shock to others. an example would be some days he loves the domestic feel of doing paper work. other days, he feels like he is dying while sitting at a desk.
social situations are also another aspect of him having no in between. miloš loves hanging out with those he is close with, but largae gatherings, and unfamiliar people are especially draining. he is, however, very good at covering this up.
even with a stranger, when happy, he finds himself rambling about what he loves.
some relationships include czech, roderich, erzsébet, gilbert, afonso, tolys, and norge. he has tried to make friends with eduard, but it didn’t go as planned. he also makes attempts towards the rest of the nordics, but progress is slow. still gets along with dane, and finn when they do happen to meet.
