Flora Cash, a Stockholm-based duo, brings their all to the world with their dreamy and emotionally beautiful new album, Nothing Lasts Forever (And It’s Fine). Every emotion possible seems to be present in this album, with perfectly simple lyrics generating a feeling of euphoria in each track. It sends you off into a trance that makes you feel lost in space and at peace.

The title track has an upbeat and relaxing melody, and the lyrics are deep and real… “Think about the memories that we share/All of the fights here and there/Running barefoot on the street/You chasing me—I chase you back then we’re free.”

The most mystical track on the album is “Roses On Your Dress,” with a unique melody and insanely enchanting vocals and an absolutely stunning chorus: “What’s going on… in your head?/’Cause we all, just wanna be special/What’s going on… in your head?/’Cause we all, just wanna be special.” I consider as one of my top favorites off the album because of the very simplicity of this song and the power it gives off.

“Memories of Us” should hit home for any listener. “We’ll believe in what we trust/We don’t know what we don’t know.” You can sense the true human emotion in this. It’s so beautifully done that I’m almost speechless… I have to note another verse that made me fall even more in love with this track…“Hang on to me my love/We only have what we design/And all the angst and all concern/Leave them here and watch them burn.”

This stunning piece of music will surely win the hearts of many. It’s a blissful masterpiece.
