Great Good Fine Ok (abbreviated GGFO) is an American synthpop duo based in New York City, United States. The band was founded by Jon Sandler and Luke Moellman in 2013.[1] Although both grew up in Upstate New York (Jon in Niskayuna and Luke in Saratoga Springs), they only met when living around the corner from each other in Brooklyn, NY.[2] In 2013 the duo released the song "You're The One For Me". Its overwhelming online popularity resulted in the song reaching #1 on Hype Machine twice in one month.[3] Soon after their first seven shows at SXSW in the spring of 2013, the band signed with Neon Gold Records/Epic Records and Transgressive Records/Warner/Chappell Music publishing.[4]

Touring[edit]

GGFO has performed shows supporting Tove Lo, X Ambassadors, The Griswolds, Bear Hands and Penguin Prison with 4 major US tours with Betty Who, Joywave, Magic Man, Smallpools, Vacationer and Panama Wedding. The band is augmented by Russ Flynn and Danny Wolf for live performances.

Music[edit]

In 2013 Great Good Fine OK released a 4-song EP entitled Body Diamond which includes, "You're The One For Me", "Not Going Home",[5] "By My Side", and "Say It All". In 2014 they released a second EP entitled 2M2H licensed by Ultra Music which reached #10 on the iTunes dance chart.[6] It includes "Too Much To Handle"[7], "Without You", "Carried Away", and "Something To Believe In" ft. St. Lucia, which premiered on Entertainment Weekly.[8][9]

In 2015 the DJ duo The Chainsmokers released the single "Let You Go" ft. Great Good Fine Ok co-written and performed by GGFO which premiered in Billboard.[10] The track has been remixed by Tiesto and A-Trak.
