Heading up the final of four days of music at Sidmouth’s Fringe Sessions, Flyte had plenty of live up to. The standard across the whole programme had been extremely strong, with the likes of Bryde, Tors and Stone Roots among others setting the bar high. The band rose to the challenge superbly though, wrapping up this wonderfully initmate event in triumphant style.
The four-piece from Hampshire – comprising Will Taylor (lead vocals, guitar), Sam Berridge (guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), Jon Supran (drums, backing vocals) and Nick Hill (bass, backing vocals) – have been honing their considerably talents for a couple of years now, supporting the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club and being booked for festival slots at Reading & Leeds, and Wilderness Festival.
Flyte thrilled the packed barn with a 50-minute set that included singles Echoes, Victoria Falls and latest song, the superb Cathy Come Home.
They also previewed other new material from debut album The Loved Ones which was recorded in Australia and is due for release on 25 August. If these chaps have managed to capture even half of the qualities of their live show on the record, then it’s all set to be one of the albums of the year.
