Listen to “Brown” and other songs on Flores’ debut EP, The Lives They Left

Out on May 11, The Lives They Left is the debut EP by Flores, a Mexican-American artist hailing from El Paso, Texas. It arrived with “Brown”, the fifth and final single.

“Brown” is an alt-R&B track carrying jazz influences. It was produced by Maths Time Joy.

About her inspiration, Flores said: “I wrote this song to the 10 year old me, the young indigenous kids who are from Mexico & Latin America who are all too often left out of the conversation. That we are from this land, we are not invaders, illegals and deserve to be treated with dignity and humanity. Our brown issues. This is a love song to validate our pains, our stories, our histories, the cruelties and injustices and a big middle finger to the government institutions that continue to oppress us through the generations,”

Listen to the whole EP on Spotify and other platforms. You can follow Flores on Instagram.
