Monstro Flora

 Los Angeles, California, USA
BandAlternativeRock

Indie rock with an artful approach to pop-sensible songwriting. Sonicly, Monstro Flora is exaggeratedly dynamic; navigating the spaces between full throttle, wall-of-sound rock and intimate, soft, vulnerability often in the same song.

Biography

MONSTRO FLORA is an L.A. band with roots in Austin, TX and songs that reveal the not always pretty trail of late night drinks, loss, hope, wonder, recklessness, love, heart break and mystery, exploring both the beautiful and the terrible sides of experience. The band employs dynamic extremes of light and dark with a bold and at times delicately artful approach to pop sensible songs.

Monstro Flora has recently finished recording their debut EP with producer Greg Richling (Wallflowers, Big Bang, ...) and is currently planning the release date. Keep your ears open...

Lyrics

Fall

Written By: Erik Flores

There's a traffic jam outside my door
I don't feel like talking anymore
When you realize what we can do
When you realize this love is true
You will fall

Painting pictures with your hands on fire
Burning down the rooms of past desire
The fleeting truth of favors in the dark
There's no way we could have known
We would fall

Wash the blood off of the welcome mat
Sweep the flowers to the street
After all this time I think you might
Hold the world beneath my feet

There's a traffic jam outside my door
I don't get much sleep these days
Lazy dreamers in a plastic shell
We can't stay here anymore
Let it fall

Dirty streets of angels
Now I see the light

Between the Stars

Written By: Erik Flores

Here they come and not too soon
With make up , scars and silver spoons
Tearing through the final mile
They've got her stuff it makes her smile
and she's gone
Between the stars she's gone
She's vicious and she's kind
She kills herself she's gone
Her eyes are holes her brain explodes
She's gone

Wonder if she's worth her smile
Dying with her super style
Sleep in ruins you decorate
It hurts like hell it's much too late Cause she's gone
Between the stars she's gone
She's vicious and she's kind
She kills herself she's gone
Her eyes are holes her brain explodes
She's gone
