After spending the first half of 2020 writing and recording new music, FLØRIS released ‘Smooth Sailing’. It’s the first track that forms part of an extended single release campaign that will be running over the second half of 2020. His debut single “Out Here” was featured on Spotify’s SAlt playlist and received airplay on 5 South African Radio Stations.
FLØRIS is based in Cape Town, South Africa and his musical style incorporates elements of Indie, Pop, Alternative, Disco, Funk and Blues. He creates guitar textures layered on top of ambient synth sounds, driven by a steady groove and topped off with punching vocal melodies, all blended together to create a soulful, upbeat and most importantly, groovy signature sound.

“Smooth Sailing” metaphorically summarises the corporate rat race that so many people find themselves caught up in, aiming to be a reminder that there’s more to life than your 9 to 5 and that prestigious LinkedIn job title. It also focuses on the sad reality that many big corporations and businesses are exploiting the hard work that their employees are expected to put in, while more often than not these same employees never get to share in any of the wins that are gained.
