Following their SOLD OUT headline Empire Music Hall, Belfast show last month, one of Ireland’s most exciting bands, The Florentinas are back with their new single ‘Miami’ released on May 23rd.
The Bangor four-piece have made a huge impact, releasing three radio singles, ‘Sandcastles’, ‘It’s Not In Vain’ and ‘Weatherman’, and receiving daytime playlist support across some of Ireland’s largest radio stations.
The band have supported Nothing But Thieves, The Amazons, Stereophonics and Snow Patrol, as well as performing at Stendhal Festival, Electric Picnic and Other Voices in 2022 and closed the year by winning the BBC Introducing Artist of the Year award at the Northern Ireland Music Prize.
On the new single, the band said; “Miami is about distance, about yearning, wishing for something you once had but now it’s too late. When writing this song, we wanted people to feel grateful for what they have in the moment and realise how precious our relationships are with one another. They can quickly fade away and become something of the past. Hold onto what you have and cherish it. You don’t want to spend your life waiting for your someone”
Formed in early 2019, The Florentinas comprises Paddy Boyd (vocals), Jacob Kane (bass), Luke Swann (guitar) and Jakob Swann (drums), who met at secondary school in Bangor, Northern Ireland.
Their hook-heavy indie rock has garnered attention at home and beyond, signing a publishing deal with BMG in 2020.
