German dark-pop artist FLØRE releases third single ‘Cigarette’ off sophomore EP ‘Romaniac’
Fresh off the release of her last single 'Bad Medicine', 'Cigarette' is FLØRE’s poignant follow up to ‘Bad Medicine’—an electro-pop bop with enormous potential for massive appeal. Layered with FLØRE's signature haunting falsettos and an addictive chorus that is bound to loop in your head or get you humming, 'Cigarette' is the next chapter from FLØRE's sophomore EP 'Romaniac'.
A soft contemporary ballad brimming with soothing keys and ethereal harmonies, 'Cigarette' promises to transport listeners to another world and hits the nail recounting feelings of toxic love and the lasting side effects of its hold on its victims. 'Cigarette' is a leap towards showcasing FLØRE's pop sensibilities that places the German singer-songwriter in the wagon towards becoming a bonafide superstar with the capability to package vulnerability and pain in a palatable, memorable tune.
Speaking about upcoming single “Cigarette”, FLØRE explains, “The song focuses on the self-destructive side of love. I often do things just to write about it and being hurt just keeps the fire going. So I like to lighten up sometimes and ‘Cigarette’ is the ‘Bad Medicine’ for something that does not need to be fixed. Being wasted is just something I'm attracted to artistically. So always coming back to the same pattern, felt like an addiction, I hurt myself on purpose. The outro in the song on the other hand, shows the vulnerable side of it and feels like the rehab in the story.”
To date, FLØRE has accumulated over 5.7 million streams on Spotify alone and is working towards releasing her sophomore EP titled ‘ROMANIAC’ in fall 2021.
