And looking at the young German lady, she is wrapped in black like a gothic girl while her hair is half colored in black and pink.
Flore laughed at the statement then happily admitted, “I’m a Swiftie.”
“I’m a Swiftie,” she said of her adoration for Taylor Swift. “She inspired me to learn to play the guitar and to sing.”
More than Swift, Flore’s music is something for fans of Phoebe Bridgers, Hayley Williams and Lorde. It hits the same notes and heart strings.
