Florida's 'Metal Detector' Unearths Old Florida's Soul in Timeless Rock

Florida, the band whose roots run deep in the Sunshine State's soil, has released their debut album, 'Metal Detector', an ode to a bygone era of loud guitars, soaring melodies, and raw emotion. This isn't just an album; it's a sonic journey through a wild musical world, a place where isolation and hope intertwined, where death metal met disco, and where bands like Nasty Savage and Judas Priest reigned supreme.

Lead single 'County Line' is a standout encapsulation - a folk-rock anthem that transcends boundaries and showcases the band's eclectic style. It's a song that could have topped the charts in decades gone by, a testament to Florida's ability to craft musical stories that resonate on a universal level.

Expanding from 'County Line', the album is a reflection of the band's personal experiences growing up in a changing Florida. Songs like 'Decap', 'Lens Makes Ruin', and 'Away From The City' capture the essence of life in the state, while tracks like 'Sure Enough' and 'Heavy Heart' grapple with loss and grief. But there's also a sense of hope and resilience woven throughout the album, a celebration of the human spirit in the face of change.

Florida's music is a unique blend of influences, from the origins of death metal and glam rock to the softer sounds of folk and pop. It's a sound that's both familiar and fresh, a testament to the band's ability to forge their own path while honoring their musical roots.

With their debut album, Florida has unearthed a treasure trove of emotions and experiences, a sonic snapshot of a place and time that's both personal and universal. 'Metal Detector' is a must-listen for anyone who's ever felt the pull of nostalgia, the ache of longing, or the thrill of discovering something new and unexpected.
