Confessional and clear-minded, flowerkid has always drawn on his most intimate observations to craft music well beyond his years. Whether the voice memo melodies he’d record as a teenager or the tracks that fill his soaring debut EP Everyone Has A Breaking Point, this has long been the sound of necessity.

Growing up in western Sydney, Flynn first fell into music after his aunt gifted him an old Yamaha keyboard. It revealed a natural obsession as he quickly began teaching himself to write and produce fledgling tracks while hidden away in his teen bedroom.

Using a voice that remains both timeless and unmistakably of the now, Flynn has here reached the apex of his creative approach thus far. Though always conceived from his personal experiences, his songs manage to hum with universal relevance. It’s the kind of music that by sharing, encourages you to share — to consider your own life and concealed pain. It also offers to do that alongside you, guiding you through with tender confidence. Like an outstretched arm or a knowing glance, Everyone Has A Breaking Point is pop at its most empathetic.
