Floodland BIO:
Astute and adept, this four piece take their sound and its delivery as seriously as their audience allows. Fluctuating from lyrically thoughtful complex ballads, through furious noisescapes and back to stripped-naked and earnest rockers, Floodland’s body of work is ever-evolving yet consistently unpretentious. From the very first verse, it becomes clear to the listener that Floodland take their inventions, though not necessarily themselves, seriously. Insistent in their craft, these zealous practitioners of indie rock produce hooks that will pick you out of the surging crowd, follow you home and stay the night.
