About Fifth Floor
Fifth Floor is a Swedish singer/songwriter duo with modern pop, rock and country influences. After meeting at university in London, Moa and Matilda began writing songs together and eventually made the decision to form a duo in the summer of 2014. Two lead vocalists, strong harmonies and a knack for writing songs that stay in your head is what makes Fifth Floor a breath of fresh air on the London music scene. With influences from artists like Miranda Lambert, McFly and Little Big Town, they are on a mission to further push country music and strong female fronted acts into the spotlight. Since forming in 2014 the duo have performed at various venues and events around London, including the well-known Hard Rock Café London, The Troubadour and BBC Music Day. In June they hosted an EP launch party on a crowded barge on the river in central London and later spent the rest of their summer performing around different events and festivals in Sweden - rounding it up with an opening slot at the popular Söderslätts Country Festival. Fifth Floor are currently in the works of recording material for their next EP with their band.
Each song is totally different but they still manage to keep their uniqueness running through each melody.
Their self-penned tunes stand up to anything Cam or Kacey Musgraves has written.
They have demonstrated an ability to create catchy melodies and write songs with an open, honest style that audiences will relate to.
You could be forgiven for thinking that the duo have known each other for a lot longer than just a couple of years. The duo have an electric chemistry that fizzes through the energetic, yet sadly short, EP.
Fifth Floor's debut EP shows a 'true to their roots' range of songs, where Moa and Matilda have identified their strengths as artists and incorporated their passions into creating a fresh sounding record.
Fifth Floor show strong potential on their debut EP, with enough talent to kick-start a career in country.
I don’t often hear artists like Fifth Floor anymore which is a shame because back in the late 90’s/early 00’s, they were exactly the type of artist I constantly listened to.
