FLIIIS - Venice
Manchester duo FLIIIS combine elements of pretty much every genre to create their easily recognisable tropical sounding indie pop. Daniel Johnson and Jazz Smith have earned support from BBC Introducing, and a dedicated fanbase with their multi-instrumental ability to write perfect summer tinged pop tracks, including their brand new single Venice.
Sounding as colourful as it’s artwork, it’s hard to believe that Venice is made by just Daniel and Jazz rather than a whole band. Despite it’s tropical sounding beat flowing throughout, the pair have managed to tone down the pop sound with melodic vocals while it’s funky sounding, catchy riff keeps the energy high from start to finish. With Venice FLIIIS have managed to balance their energy, keeping away from the generic indie pop sound which so many bands have at the moment and providing a chilled track which simply screams summer.
