FLYTE DEBUT ALBUM THE LOVED ONES OUT TODAY/UK TOUR, HEADLINE SCALA SEPTEMBER 19

Never the kind of band to act in uncertain haste when it comes to their music, each song off Flyte's debut album The Loved Ones feels like something to relish, to mull over, with a deeper, unfolding resonance. In the school of Grizzly Bear, Alt J, and Fleet Foxes, Flyte have used their four voices to guide their sound, avoiding crashing cymbals and layers of electric guitars in favour of a more carefully constructed approach. The Loved Ones is the result of years of enlightenment and friendship.

"The Loved Ones is for the thoughtful listener. Like a book you can open and read from start to finish. An album you would listen to on headphones on the bus to school, that is yours and no one else's," says lead singer Will Taylor. Today Flyte release their exceptional debut 10-Track LP, and to celebrate their album release, the four-piece reveal the first instalment of 'Behind Sliding Doors', which documents early sessions in the studio, from the perspective of producer Burke Reid and created by good friend Balan Evan.

Flyte separately admit that as early as age ten, a career in music was their only ambition. Drummer Jon Supran and bassist Nick Hill met guitarist Will at their local comprehensive school, where Will's parents both taught English. They later came upon keys player Sam Berridge busking at Tottenham Court Road station after moving to Hackney in their late teens. Accomplished songwriters who quickly earned a reputation for their trademark vocal arrangements and live show, the band released a flurry of alternative singles before pairing up with Courtney Barnett producer Burke Reid to create their first full length record.

‘Breaking Act’ Mondo Cozmo debut album 'Plastic Soul' and UK Summer Tour Dates

In December 2016, a man and his rescue dog drove out to Joshua Tree in the Southern California Desert. Armed with a guitar and “a shitty 10-year-old laptop,” the genre-spanning maverick spent two weeks screaming into a microphone at two in the morning and bleeding over his guitar strings in between walking his dog under the cool, arid night sky and barely sleeping at the “weird house” he rented. That man was Mondo Cozmo (the dog just goes by Cozmo, you can hear his input on the raucous ‘Come With Me’). They left the desert with the artist’s 2017 full-length debut, ‘Plastic Soul’ in tow.

‘Plastic Soul’ is a genuinely unique, impassioned collection of ten songs. It has to be one of the most intriguing, exciting and impressive debuts to be released this year. Having already been tipped by Sunday Times Culture as a ‘Breaking Act’ and with every track released to date being named a ‘Best New Track’ in NME, as well as support from BBC Radio 1 and Radio X, this year looks set to belong to Mondo Cozmo.

Check out Mondo Cozmo - Plastic Soul (Live From Exit/In, Nashville)

  

The tracklist for ‘Plastic Soul’ is:
1.Plastic Soul
2.Hold On To Me
3.Higher
4.Come With Me
5.Shine
6.Thunder
7.Automatic
8.11 Acre
9.Angel
10.Chemical Dream

FLYTE REVEAL new video"Cathy Come Home", Debut Album "The Love Ones", Headline Scala & UKTour Dates

Today Flyte reveal the remarkable video for 'Cathy Come Home', produced by legendary collective CANADA (Tame Impala, El Guincho) and directed by rising filmmaker Femke Huurdeman. A discovery of coming of age nostalgia and cinematic delicacy, the song takes its name from the 1966 BBC play directed by Ken Loach. "To us, being English is all about that undercurrent of sadness" says lead singer Will Taylor, "It's what's inspired the whole record. Cathy Come Home is about parents dealing with an empty nest, struggling to let their children out into the world". Cathy Come Home is lifted from Flyte's debut record – The Loved Ones – the title announced today and set for release on August 25 on Island Records, with pre-order available now.

In the school of Grizzly Bear, Alt J, and Fleet Foxes, Flyte have used their four voices to guide their sound, avoiding crashing cymbals and layers of electric guitars in favour of a more crafted, constructed approach. Not so much drawing on his own life as seeking experiences to then reflect upon, Will's style of writing has as much in common with George Orwell as it does with Nick Drake, Ray Davies, or any number of songwriters who have tapped into the English malaise for inspiration, the album taking its name from Evelyn Waugh's tragic story The Loved One.

Flyte separately admit that as early as age ten, a career in music was their only ambition. Drummer Jon Supran and bassist Nick Hill met guitarist Will at their local comprehensive school, where Will's parents both taught English. They later came upon keys player Sam Berridge busking at Tottenham Court Road station after moving to Hackney in their late teens. Accomplished songwriters who quickly earned a reputation for their trademark vocal arrangements and live show, the band released a flurry of alternative singles before pairing up with Courtney Barnett producer Burke Reid to create their first full length record.
