Flo’s mystically joyful song, “Set In Stone” empowers your imagination to seek out the delightful taste of a hopeful future.
She sings of a broken love story through the eyes of a wise child- positive, inspired, and pure. The optimism examined in this song is one everyone should aspire to feel; Flo has created a wonderous piece of art that paints the picture of loneliness in an innovative light.
I walk to the edge just to see where it ends
And I sit on that edge
Until the sun sets
I’ll figure it out
Nothing’s set in stone
This self-described cinematic indie folk singer certainly creates a film in your mind as you’re experiencing this song. Her impressionistic story-telling ability is abundant as you go on this tranquil journey of imagination. She sings of an idyllic future with a lover, choosing to focus on simple moments of future memories to be made.
And we’ll fall asleep in the back of a car
Tired of dreaming in silence
It’s the kind of song you listen to while contemplating the meaning of life in your backyard, at night with the overhanging fairy lights twinkling in your peripheral, as tears glisten in your eyes because the optimism present in this song is just so lovely. Flo fashions a world within her song, and you can’t help but be transported. While listening to “Set In Stone,” I, personally, picture myself resting on a foggy mountainside, maybe around a bonfire, with the vastness of the universe sparkling in the night sky.
Flo’s voice sneaks into this hauntingly tranquil scene, creating the perfect pixie dream girl aesthetic that I didn’t know could exist.
The intricate guitar strumming impeccably compliment’s Flo’s soothingly sweet voice, in a way that urges you to care for the softness in life. Her lyrics simply roll off the tongue, because they seem like exactly what you need to hear when a complicated breakup or other undesirable situation is thrown your way. Her voice is calm, her story collected and expectant- so sure of the outcome to be. To create such a powerful, yet ethereal, story within a song is the mark of a true artist. The idyllic nature of “Set In Stone” makes it stand out in a world where there’s so much negativity and selfishness. The picture Flo cultivates within this song is one of bittersweet hope.
I’ve got nowhere to be
So I’ll wander aimlessly
Hoping you’ll be in the picture
Somewhere in the distance
I can see the silhouette of us
It’s easy to fall in love with the combination of such a beautifully sweet voice and an equally sweet message. The first thought that crossed my mind when I heard Flo’s voice was, “She sounds like an innocent little fairy!” It’s lovely to stumble across an artist who possesses both a magical voice and a magical mind, as evident in the unpretentious brilliance of her lyrics.
And I’ll be mindful and steady
Because I know it’s not easy to breathe
When all your senses make no sense at all
If you possess a sensitive nature, or simply enjoy magically-crafted sounds, then you’ll certainly appreciate this song. Flo’s delicate, yet compatibly powerful, observation of life- lost love, and the hope for a happy ending- is an artistically delightful piece of clever song-writing. Listening to Flo’s “Set In Stone” allows you to experience a perspective of life you may not have thought of, or perhaps reaffirms your own beliefs of the universe.
Holding such positivity for the future, within the wake of a desolate situation, is a wonderful way to be.
