Floatie, have announced their forthcoming release Voyage Out, will drop on March 26, via Exploding in Sound (Ovlov, Mister Goblin, June Gloom). Ahead of the album’s arrival, the band have shared the single, “Shiny,” which follows lead-single “Catch a Good Worm.” The band recorded Voyage Out at Chicago’s Pallet Sound with Seth Engel.
Floatie, includes Sam Bern, Luc Schutz, Joe Olson, and Will Wisniewski. The quartet have been playing shows and making music together for nearly a decade, but it wasn’t until 2018 that Floatie came to light. It’s a collaborative effort of dear friends that is both exceptionally tight and radiantly enjoyable. They take a visionary approach toward creating music that can feel both tangled and hypnotic, challenging and comforting, all at the same time. Each member’s contributions fuse together to create a sound that relies as much on austere construction as it does on finding joy in their time spent together. Voyage Out never fails to share those human feelings, even if often done from a more alien perspective.
