The Swedish-American indie pop duo Flora Cash’s ‘You’re Somebody Else‘ was featured on the new Netflix series Locke & Key this week — Locke & Key, Season 1, Episode 7, “Dissection“.
The song was played as at the end of the episode over the credits, and is from the duo’s debut studio album Nothing Lasts Forever (And It’s Fine).
Of course, this is not the first time Flora Cash’s ‘You’re Somebody Else‘ has been used for a hit TV series. It has also shown up on shows like Marvel’s Runaways, Skam Germany, Shameless and The Good Doctor.
Not surprisingly really as it is an incredibly well-written indie pop song with a hook that just grabs on and just doesn’t let go. To the point that you will be humming this to yourself hours after you first hear it.
Flora Cash’s ‘You’re Somebody Else‘ was written by the duo ( Shpresa Lleshaj and Cole Randall) about anxiety and about how when you are so anxious, you don’t feel like yourself at all.
Beautifully-written lyrics like
“You were the better part
Of every bit of beating heart that I had
Whatever I had
I finally sat alone
Pitch black flesh and bone
Couldn’t believe that you were gone”
really hook you in with their gorgeous simplicity.
The couple themselves have an interesting story as well, as they first met on SoundCloud when they started to message each other about their music.
The duo eventually met in real life when they were both in Minneapolis, loved the work each was doing, and so decided to collaborate on a new music project, which eventually became Flora Cash.
Then they fell in love. Then they got married.
In other words, you don’t get much more authentic than these two when it comes to the emotional music they write.

You can check out the trailer for the new supernatural horror series below, and then stream all of its first season on Netflix.
With viewers seeming to mostly love it, you can probably guarantee it will be back for a second season soon as well.
