London based trio ‘Fortnight In Florida’, are a self-produced collaboration hailing Toro Y Moi, Holy Ghost! and Gramme amongst their biggest influences. Born from a shared love of disco, synth pop, and encyclopaedic regurgitations of Alan Partridge quotes, ‘Fortnight In Florida’ symbolises the anticipation of escaping the daily grind, expressed by their own brand of ‘Chilled Electronic Pop’. After finishing a tour as Keys player for Lianne La Havas, the bands Singer-songwriter Simon Middleton met Eamonn Dawe (Bass/Guitars) on a previous musical venture and ‘Fortnight In Florida' was formed, shortly followed by Andrew Gallop on Drums. With a debut EP set for release in Summer 2016, ‘Fortnight In Florida’ have enough material for an album having already released three singles; ’Save Our City’, ‘Your House’ and ‘Cameo’, the latter enjoying a feature by ‘The Unsigned Guide’ and radio play on BBC6 Music with endorsements from Tom Robinson on BBC Introducing. Having made the ‘Glastonbury 2016 Emerging Talent Longlist’ and following a debut show Supporting Ms Dynamite at Wilkestock Festival, the live show is well under way with bookings taking shape for the new year, including the Westway LAB Festival in Portugal.

Smooth electronic soul with lovely gently shuffling beats and gorgeous muted guitars

The intro to this song dangerously flirts with a slow disco vibe (I actually thought it was Daft Punk), however, when singer Simon Middleton settles us down with a simple gesture of ‘It’s alright’, the song finds direction with subtle, ambient synths keeping the groove flowing accompanied but some excellent fills and progression by drummer Andrew Gallop (great name for a drummer).
