Floating Points to play live show at Manchester Academy

Floating Points to play live show at Manchester Academy


At the beginning of November last year, Floating Points released his 5-years-in-the-making debut LP after a vigorous schedule of both studio time and worldwide performances that surrounded its production.

The 7-track album, named Elaenia, was recorded with the help of an 11-piece band and has been released on his own Pluto label, with a tour having already proceeded the release date. What was special about this tour however, is that the full band that was involved in the album toured with Floating Points in a brand new live show that was taken to just a very few venues over the globe.

Premiered at Dimensions Festival last year and taken to just 5 other music venues across Holland, Paris, The UK and New York, this live show is as of yet unseen by many and will, to the delight of that many, be able to be seen very soon at The Manchester Apollo.

On the 12th of February, Floating Points will be playing live alongside his 11-piece ensemble at The Manchester Academy 2. The ensemble consists of a live drummer, guitarists, a horn section and a strings section, which gel together to create Floating Point’s beautiful layers sound that has given him and his debut album a reputation amongst more hardened music fans. Joining Floating Points on the night will also be a number of support acts, who are as of yet, unannounced.
