Get To Know Me: Floral Tattoo

The eighth year of local music festival, VanFest, is taking place on Saturday, August 25 at Royal Arch Masonic Park in Maple Valley. To celebrate the little fest that could, we're spending the next two months highlighting the bands playing VanFest 8. Today, get to know Kirkland acid power emo shoeglance band Floral Tattoo.

Floral Tattoo started in fall 2015 as a solo folk punk project. I spent roughly two years playing an acoustic guitar and yelling at people in living rooms, next to fountains, and in coffee shops. After a year spent living in Chico, CA, I came home and this project became a full band. Gwen, Nico, and Christian are all far more talented than I am, things have seemed to work out for the best thus far. My roommate Travis (who also mixed our album, thanks bud!) described our music as "shoeglance", so make of that what you will. If you throw all the songs on this playlist into a blender, the result might sound something like us. Thanks for reading this, see you at vanfest -Alex <3
