Longtemps attendu, souvent annoncé, plusieurs fois retardé, de longs mois furent necessaires à la belle éclosion de leur premier album "Bluffer's Guide To The Flight Deck" enregistré avec la bienveillance des producteurs Brian O'Shaughnessy (Moose, Denim, Beth Orton,...) et Steve Swindon.
Formation atypique s'il en est, FLOTATION TOY WARNING, délivre une musique majestueuse et décalée, samples flottants, voix renversante, orchestration ou se mêlent et se fondent scie musicale, claviers, domingotron, guitare et programmation; miroir anglais de groupes tels que Mercury Rev, Flamings Lips ou encore Polyphonic Spree pour certains. Un peu de cela, mais miroir poli.
 

(EN)

"swirls of guitar, looped samples and beautifully bereft vocals to beguiling lo-fi effect, recalling both DIY Flaming Lips and the glitchyside of Sparklehorse……Buckled but beauteous, psychedelic Victoriana with beats" Time Out

"... a halfway house between Grandaddy's space-boy dreaming and Tindersticks ennui….we demand they be included on the Flaming lips' tour now!" NME

" fine, atmospheric delights that sparkle like the aurora borealis and are rare treats and more proof that Flotation Toy Warning are one of the most beguiling delights of the year." Music Week
