Fortnight In Florida pull us ears-first into a neon amalgamation of the old and the new in “Easier to Lose”.
Retro synths sidle up against modern melodic minimalism, while waves of vocal magic wash us over.
A choice and a consequence…
Back from whence you’ve come… A chain, unbroken…
Thoughts, spoken, acted on.
“It’s not easy to be what you want…”
We’re welcomed into another world by bright warmth in “Easier to Lose”. Surreal in sound and amorphous in form, this track takes us back to a time we never knew.
Pulsing stabs toggle sides over aeriform voices and shivering silence until bass notes eclipse them. Kicks and snares call and answer each other from deep beneath a blanket of sounds. The song mounts in energy then gives way with a passing hiss.
Living with our choices… Fortnight In Florida broach topics of self-discovery in “Easier to Lose,” dealing with the pain of life’s decisions leaving lasting marks on mind and memory. This song gives us a lush haze of tones with reassurance in hiding – it’s an umbrella offered in pouring rain.
It’s far too easy to lose yourself in this song. Press play and get lost.
