Stream 'Flora & Fawna' EP

The music of new Austin duo Flora & Fawna summons a deep city groove – rhythmically incessant, icy cool and modern. You can almost hear it echoing through nighttime concrete canyons. Yet there’s also something warm and soulful about the way songwriters and multi-instrumentalist songwriters Lili Hickman and Mason Ables blend their voices into one. Both native Austinites, the two met by chance at the Spider House. Ables was playing in a soul band, Hickman, daughter of Austin songwriter Sara Hickman, was playing folk music and looking for other musicians to round out her sound. Their 6-track debut EP is out now featuring "Slow Burn" (recently added to NPR's Slingshot playlist, "Shallow" and KUTX's Song of The Day "Tempted by the Timing." - Jeff McCord
