Five lives that collided to make a stamp of their own.
Floodlights’ dynamic live performance is raw and intimate, intertwined with powerful outbursts and marching rhythms. Evocative lyricism lies at the heart of their songwriting and is enhanced by their unique sound. They explore themes of personal turbulence, national identity and the Australian landscape as a form of escapism. Floodlights write honestly and poetically in the hope that it resonates with others.
Gaining global attention with 2019’s sold-out EP 'Backyard' and 2020’s critically acclaimed debut album 'From a View', Floodlights went on to play sold-out shows and festivals across Australia, performing alongside the likes of Amyl and The Sniffers and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. Appearances at all three Falls Festivals over the Australian summer has sling-shotted them into this year, whilst gearing up for tour dates with Pavement (USA) in early March.
With the highly anticipated 2023 release of their second album, Floodlights showcase their distinctive style and compelling evolution as a band.
