Last week, Flyte performed to a packed Heath Street Baptist Church in North London, using string quartet accompaniment to reimagine their critically acclaimed debut album The Loved Ones. Reminiscent of an MTV unplugged session, the night further established their reputation as remarkable live performers.
Having reached the end of seven months of touring, the band took a break on the Isle of Wight, to write and produce two completely new songs. The result was Moon Unit – a nod to Frank Zappa’s daughter and an ode to the songs their parents would listen to on cassette during long drives – and Victory Girls, a simple, melodic piece, which crosses history both lyrically and stylistically.
The band’s considerable travels are far from over though – Flyte head to America for the first time this month, performing at SXSW, and additional shows in New York and LA.
