Waterflower is an experimental, eco-futuristic project by artist Sabīne Moore (Riga, Latvia). Using plants and mushrooms as complementary instruments to their music, they channel the frustration of dying nature, taking the listener to interesting & dark places both in sound and subject.

Waterflower blends avant-pop, hyperpop and digital hardcore to create music that speaks to the urgent need to protect and preserve our natural world. Waterflower’s live shows feature synced video animations, also made by the artist, creating an immersive and multi-sensory experience.
With a critically acclaimed album “Balta Gaisma” (nominated for two Latvian Zelta Mikrofons awards) and an entirely self-produced music video “Mycelium (Step By Step)” showcased in the Riga IFF Baltic Music Video selection, Waterflower is not only a musical talent, but also seamlessly transitions between multimedia art and underground clubs.

In addition Waterflower, Sabine’s artistic journey encompasses a diverse range of expressions, experimenting with performance art and embodying characters like the Drag King Bils Lagūns (Bill Lagoon).

Waterflower’s roots in the underground music scene go back to 2006, when they first gained recognition as bedroom pop and noise act Kroffork, releasing their music for free on last.fm. As one of the first female solo acts in electronic music in the Latvian underground, Sabīne Moore has been making a name for themselves for over a decade.
