‘Fortnight In Florida’ are a London three-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, Fortnight In Florida 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 six 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. Their tracks 'Cameo' and 'It's Alright' both made the 'Fresh On The Net' Fresh Faves, and received Radio play on BBC 6 Music and Amazing Radio. In 2017 they launched a crowdfunding campaign to help them raise funds to record their debut album In-flight Entertainment at Rockfield in South Wales, UK. Their second single ‘I Can’t Wait Forever’ was released in late 2019. It premiered on GigSlutz and has gained 42,000 streams on Spotify to date.
