Introducing: FLOAT

FLOAT ride a wave of sound driven by pounding rhythms, piercing jangly lead, gloomy riffs and haunting vocals.

Hailing from all corners of England,  London based post-punk outfit FLOAT came together a year ago and have already seen their boisterous brand of rock music earn them a glowing reputation in their scene.

Starting out with static noise and a propulsive bass riff, ‘WATCH’ instantly lunges you head first into the raucous world of FLOAT with their motorik, driving rhythms, spiky guitars and darkly washed-out vocals. With influences ranging from Echo & The Bunnymen and Television to Bauhaus and The Doors, FLOAT are ensuring the lineage of exciting guitar bands remains unbroken.

Who?

Edmund (lead vocals/keys) – Hull. Andrew S (Guitar/backing – vocals) – Rochdale, Andrew H (Bass) – Middlesbrough, Bradley (Drums) – Reading, Joe (Guitar/backing vocals) – Cheltenham

The Story

With most songs originally written over the years by frontman, Edmund, the band came together quite naturally due to mutual friendships. Our first actual show (unofficial, as we called it) was a headline slot at The Rocksteady in London from then we played an all-dayer Leeds a week later and have been playing shows in and around parts of the UK such as Bristol, Brighton, and London with bands such as  Dead Coast, Mamuthones, Sleepovers, Syd Kemp, Juju, Carlton Melton, Gaygirl, Telegram, The Cosmic Dead, Elephant Stone, Desert Mountain Tribe, Secret Fix, Heirloom, Lice, Nonn, Sisteray, Girls in Synthesis to name a few.

The band have been writing new material since and have more releases (single and EP) and more shows around the country to come this year.
