Fortnight In Florida herald spring with the sunshine sheen of their infectious electro pop single ‘Easier To Lose’, the first to be taken from their debut album, In-flight Entertainment. A sequenced synth line buoys the vocal line at the start of ‘Easier To Lose’, the first single to be taken from the album. Recorded at Rockfield studios under the guidance of engineer and producer Laurence Anslow, Fortnight In Florida pack a raft of diverse contemporary influences, ranging from Holy Ghost! and Massive Attack to Friendly Fires, into their blissed-out lysergic electro pop melange.
Fortnight In Florida are a London four-piece who consider Toro Y Moi, Holy Ghost! and Hot Chip as some of their biggest influences. Born from a shared love of disco, synth pop, and an encyclopedic knowledge of Alan Partridge quotes, the band symbolises the will to escape the daily grind, expressed by their inimitable brand of blissed-out Electronic Pop.
After finishing a tour as keys player for Lianne La Havas, the band’s singer/songwriter Simon Middleton met Eamonn Dawe (bass/guitars) on a previous musical venture and Fortnight In Florida was formed. Shortly after, they were joined on drums by Andrew Gallop, with Lyle Moxsom on guitars. With three singles and a debut EP, So Long, released in 2016, Fortnight In Florida made the ‘Glastonbury 2016 Emerging Talent’ longlist and the ‘Unsigned Guide's Emerging Acts of 2017’ list having already been featured in their Spotlight blog. With the final touches being made to the album they look set to release it in Spring 2019.
