Flower Face is the stage name of Ontario artist Ruby Mckinnon.
This is the third single off her SIXTH album, The Shark In Your Water, released in 2022 after a four-year wait. She tends to do a fair bit of her recordings in her bedroom. I don't know if this one was recorded there (the video implies that it was not), but I do know she wrote the song and performed all the instruments and vocals.
Before you go there.... I wasn't one of those people waiting for her alt-pop gem of an album for four years. I *just* discovered her, and think she's fantastic. The reason I keep coming back to #MapleLeafMarch is because I keep discovering artists I love that I would not have otherwise heard. Canadian independent music doesn't get play in the States like it should.
The self-deprecating video plays like a game of Rock Band and shows Flower Face's multiinstrumental talents.
