Started in 2010
TFM grew spontaneously out of their church's youth band, based in Tunbridge Wells, UK.
Inspired by bands such as Delirious? and Rend Collective Experiment, Andrew, Jack and later Ross turned their attention to writing songs that would serve the church in both a worship context and for personal devotion. Their aim is to write music accessible to everyone with unashamedly Christian lyrics.
Ok, but why "Third Floor Movement"?
The idea behind the name is rather basic: Hell = first floor, Earth = second floor, Heaven = third floor. ‘Movement’ was added to imply action as well as songs, but also (mostly) because it sounds cool.
Grew in size
Following some "God-prods", the band added Dave and Ross, eventually settling into the established four-piece format.
Developed a vision
We want to see people really engaging with the truth of the gospel and how it affects our day to day lives, through an artform which inspires us. We want to engage with creativity on a level that affirms that we're made in God's image.
