Biography

No matter which way you look at it, The Floors are a live band. Brothers Luke and Ryan Dux – troubadours not only with The Floors but also Kill Devil Hills, Timothy Nelson And The Infidels and Will Stoker And The Embers – took home West Australian Music Industry Awards for Best Guitarist and Best Bassist respectively, in both 2009 and 2010... all based on the strength of live performance.

Luke’s enviable skill and authenticity as a guitarist, backed by Ryan’s colossal wall of bass, became a signature sound of its own as The Floors began performing around Australia. Add a stomping beat (courtesy of Perth go-to drummer Ashley Doodkorte), some dark lyrics and a voice that can own them; and what else does there need to be.

Sincere and effectively simple; The Floors’ raw and primitive live sound summons a similarly raw and primitive reaction... people dance. They sing along.

Even in the studio The Floors are a live band. They perform their songs together in a room, captured by a few German microphones and a friend with good ears. The life of the recording is the performance... the energy and chemistry of moments in time, somehow wrangled and squeezed through two speakers.
