Now this is the kind of music you want to be starting the weekend with, preferably chilling out in the sun with a cold one – Music Riot, UK.
The Floating Bridges (QLD) create infectious roots music, blending together big lively ska grooves, thick bottom end bass lines and smooth four part vocal harmonies – perfect for the dance floor!
The Sunny Coast 7 piece ooze charisma on stage and off. They have long been known for their passion and dedication to music, culture, community, and the environment, forever paying respect to those who have gone before and the land they walk upon.
In 2012, TFB released and toured (AUS/NZ) their first studio album ‘Chasing Sunsets’, with classic ‘Bridges’ tunes like ‘Soul Searcher’, an ode to living life free without negativity, and that’s what we ‘Like To See’, written about their journey’s in and around Byron Bay.
500 shows wiser, the band released their 2nd album ‘Creatures of Leisure’ (2015), gaining international exposure with ‘Dreamcatcher’, a song for the imagination, clipped with punchy rhythm guitar and the wah-wahing lead, fusing the two styles of Rock and Roots, to lay down a backing for Cale Fisher’s rasping delivery of a deliciously catchy melody. The very Australian dreamcatcher theme is echoed in the video clip, a surreal woodland combination of “Alice in Wonderland” and a dreadlocked Artful Dodger. The Floating Bridges spent the majority of 2015 touring the ‘Creatures’ album across Australia and the UK with feature performances at festivals like Boomtown Fair (UK), Secret Garden Party (UK), Big Pineapple (AUS) and Woodford Folk Festival (AUS).
2016 opens the door to new creativity for the ‘Bridges’, spending the first half of the year in the studio laying the foundations for new music to be released out into the wild. The first single comes in the form of the ‘Finer Things in Life’. Recorded at the Tanuki Lounge with Aria award winner Paulie B (George), this song shines a light on doing the things that make you happy, more often than not. ‘Finer Things’ is smooth, tasty and can be described as ‘just right for summer’!
The Floating Bridges are touring their latest single ‘Finer Things in Life’ throughout QLD, WA, NSW and VIC throughout 2016/17.
