Florian on the title: “Some time ago, I watched a documentary on water and was blown away by the footage of a desert bloom in Chile’s Atacama Desert – the driest place on earth. In some parts of the desert, rain doesn’t fall for up to 10 years. But then, when the rain does come, the colours explode. After staying dormant in the ground for years, protected underneath the hot and dry desert floor, the seeds of wildflowers suddenly germinate after heavy rainfall, turning the desert into a flower garden within days. Ready all this time, they have been patiently waiting until the conditions were right to come out. This is what it has felt like to be a musician over the last two years. Waiting and waiting for the bloom.”
