After two highly successful singles in the lead up to a highly anticipated EP, Flvme has solidified his position among the best hip hop artists coming out of South Africa.
Germander is a species of flower that is known to have medicinal benefits, and as such, since the inception of the title “Germander”, Flvme made this project through the lens of this flower’s life cycle, with the intention to heal all those that consume it.
“I feel this best describes me, I am that flower, a seed planted, watered, left to dry up, revered in my season of blossoming and allowed to bloom, and that’s what the title is for,” he says.
‘Let Me Down’ was the first release of 2022 from the project and is a song about reflecting on past relationships and how they helped shape who he is, “Accepting everything for what it is and understanding that I have to go through a lot in order to grow, overall it’s just about finding peace within myself,” he says.
Followed by ‘Prayers Up’, the second single from the EP, Flvme raps about his faith and relationship with God, of which he said, “Living in the world and how it is today, I feel like it’s only right to stay prayed up. It’s also about embracing myself as a flawed human being and understanding that the future is never promised.
Germander II finds the artist on a quest to find balance between all the high and lows of life and his career, while remaining ready for any outcome, while remembering to live in the moment.
