Flying Hórses is a journey through childhood memories of dusty dollhouses and wide eyed innocence.
Flying Hórses’ debut album, Tölt, captures a wide range of emotions and sonic landscapes. Its entrancing narrative opens with childlike innocence and purity, moving through struggle, and finally darkness, before coming full circle. Tölt weaves together soaring melodies, hypnotic progressions, and lush atmospheres in an enthralling and unique set of compositions.
The album was mixed by Nicolas Petrowsky (Godspeed You! Black Emperor) at Mixart Studios in Montreal, Canada and mastered by Birgir Jón Birgisson (Sigur Rós) at Sundlaugin Studio, Iceland.

“A project that gained steam in both Ottawa and Montreal’s local scenes over the better part of 2014, Flying Hórses’ music is emotionally rooted in the memories and innocence of childhood. Ruminating on these thoughts and feelings had the crowd lost in reflection as the duo of multi-instrumentalist Jade Bergeron and cellist Raphael Weinroth-Browne celebrated the release of their debut album Tölt, enrapturing the audience with their incredibly cinematic, evocative compositions.”
