From band website:
The Fortunate are 4 individuals who love to write and play music for the world. Having met at college, brought together through their love of music, The Fortunate worked tirelessly on creating a new sound with a strong sense of youthful, British originality. With a variety of musical influences ranging from Fleetwood Mac to Duran Duran, The Fortunate have achieved a sound all of their own, arguably unlike anything else that has surfaced over recent years.
Their sound has been described as falling under the vast metaphoric umbrella of alternative rock. However, their infectious twists of pop and Paramore-esque style punk added with a delicious helping of a subtle eighties edge, seems to bridge the narrow gap between generic indie-pop and pop-punk.
