Weatherman [3:05]


The Florentinas are releasing their new single 'Weatherman' on February 24th. Fresh off their BBC Introducing Artist of The Year win at the Northern Ireland Music Prize, the Bangor four-piece are set for another busy year.

"Weatherman is a song about being realistic - there's a fine line between positivity and burying your head in the sand. The weatherman is a figure that can tell you what you want to hear but that doesn't mean that he can control the weather," says the band.

"We live in a day and age where information is so accessible and that majority of it is complete and utter nonsense. I guess that's what the line "We're built to fall" comes from. It refers to how easy it is for us as people to get caught up in it all of that."

In 2022 The Florentinas released singles 'Sandcastles' and 'It's Not In Vain', both playlisted on Cool FM, Q Radio, RTE 2fm and BBC Radio Ulster.
The band have supported Nothing But Thieves, The Amazons, Stereophonics and Snow Patrol, as well as performing at Stendhal Festival, Electric Picnic and Other Voices in 2022.

The Florentinas headline The Empire, Belfast on May 5th. 'Weatherman' will be available everywhere on February 24th.
