Molly Burch’s sophomore album First Flower steps away from the somber, more yearning tones of Please Be Mine, the artist’s debut album, and explores a deeper sense of introspection and self-growth, shifting from romance to anxieties the artist has as a person and as a performer. The album was released in early October through Captured Tracks.
