Comprising members of some of the most expansive, expressive and progressive Australian bands of the past two decades, FloatingMe definitely have pedigree on their side, but even more exciting is the fact they’re looking at a much bigger picture – one that takes what they’ve collectively done in the past and balloons it into 3D.
It’s rare to find a band with a vision so broad and the skills to back it all up. It’s even more rare when a band manages to convert those enviable attributes into engaging songs.
The seeds of FloatingMe were actually sown in LA in the late 90s, where Borich and Gillespie found themselves between bands. After returning to Australia, Gillespie, Brown and Messiter started stitching together the epic threads of rock and electronica that would eventually become FloatingMe and Borich was bought back to help on a track.
