Float Here Forever is a three-piece alternative rock band from Detroit, Michigan featuring Darrell Bazian on vocals/guitar, Nick Marko on drums/percussion and Samantha Easterbrook on vocals/bass. Their first full length Tour the Ruins is released on January 1st 2019. The album was recorded at Temper Mill studios in Ferndale, Michigan by Grammy award winner Dave Feeny (White Stripes, Loretta Lynn) and mastered by Alan Douches (Dillinger Escape Plan, Brand New, Mastodon) of West West Side Music.
Fourteen powerful rock tunes make up a highly enjoyable album which echoes the later days of Husker Du and Bob Mould’s next band Sugar. With the ability to carve out driving rock music but add a distinct melodic edge this band stands out amongst the alternative rock community. Songs are short and to the point, not overstaying their welcome, the whole song book fitting into just over the 30 minutes. The dual vocals of Bazian and Easterbrook are particularly compelling. When the band slow things down the musicianship is particularly impressive with the three piece creating an epic sound. A very impressive debut created by quality musicians who have honed their art to create great music.
Darrell Bazian has spent the last 2 decades writing and composing music for bands that he formed, managed and played in. (Osmus, Singer Soldier) He has opened for platinum and gold selling artists and has had his music aired on regional radio stations. He spends most of his time with fellow band mate Nick Marko composing and engineering music for the ALP Music library.
Nick Marko (Singer Soldier, The Holy Fire) started playing clubs at the age of 14 and started releasing records on a national level in the 2000’s with The Holy Fire (Sony). He became recognized as a drummer by publications like Revolt Media and Amplifier Magazine. Billboard.com described The Holy Fire as a “vibrant mixture of shimmering melody and darkly literate post-punk texture.” Marko, a former Sony/BMG recording artist was produced by Michael Ivins of the Flaming Lips and has recorded with Grammy winner Dave Feeny.
Samantha Easterbrook joined Float Here Forever for the recording of Tour the Ruins. She has been fronting bands for over a decade in the Metro Detroit scene.
