interlude video

I made a video for our new single “interlude” – it’s composed of about a thousand photos i took during the covid years!

Listen to the single “Interlude” with b-side “A Toe in the Water” on bandcamp or whatever your favorite streaming service is.

Floatinghome - interlude SINGLE

I’m pleased to announce that on friday may 3rd, our new single “Interlude” will be released, taken from our forthcoming album “The Other Seat Was Taken”. It is a song written in the midst of the covid lockdowns a couple of years ago…

B-side “A Toe in the Water” is an immersive instrumental sound-art piece composed now-ish (april 2024) that probably needs decent speakers or headphones to make any sense!

Pick up a copy at bandcamp 🙂

the passing of a close friend and singer with us

we lost a good one this christmas – im gutted about Kevin Ryan’s passing… a backing singer with the band on many recordings, a beautiful person, a great musician, amazing songwriter and a best friend – my partner in crime for more than fifteen years – a wonderful soul, gone…
we had so much fun, so many songs, so many kilometres travelled and so much more adventure planned… i don’t know what to do with myself!
i thought i’d share this here video that we were working on. we were going to add some handwriting and drawing but didn’t get around to it 🙁 here we all are, though, immortalised in a moment… kevin and a selection of his friends, playing a song that he wrote about David Bowie’s passing a few years ago, “Mr. Jones”, set upon a collage of videos from the night.

waves on the beach at lahinch

One sunny-rainy morning in winter after covid, i had a walk along the seafront in Lahinch. It was the day after our Kennys show on Wallis Bird’s band’s 2022 tour. I took some pictures of the waves upon whose ancestors i learned to surf, from the cliffs where i wrote this song, at the other end of the day a couple of decades ago.

This version of “waves” by floatinghome is an excerpt of verse 3 taken from our live album, “live and sans souci”, with a bit of the effecty action from the end of the song copied over the start, featuring i, aidan, ben kritikos, augi dethier, remy lehembre, anna jacob and fabrice bihain.

Listen to or buy the full version of “waves” and indeed the full “live and sans souci” album (vinyl, cd or digital) at https://floatinghome.bandcamp.com/album/live-and-sans-souci
