Flyte

Having spent the past six months holed up in the claustrophobic confines of their gloriously ramshackle Bethnal Green recording studio, London four piece Flyte – Will Taylor (vocals, lead guitar), Nick Hill (bass, vocals), Sam Berridge (keyboards, guitars, vocals) and Jon Supran (drums, vocals) – emerge from the process energised and ready to unleash a raft of new material on the world, kicking off with debut single ‘Closer Together’ released on 31st July through Island Records. Combining a wealth of influences ranging from the wry storytelling of The Kinks, the off-kilter new wave sensibilities of Talking Heads, and the lyrically incisive optimism of the best mid-90s British bands, Flyte’s songs are always driven by a sharp ear for melody and laden with hooks. Flyte’s recent live performances – including a stunning slot at Scala with Hinds – have seen the band growing in stature as performers from their early shows on the road with the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club. Fans will be able to catch them on the road this summer at various festivals such as Secret Garden Party, Kendall Calling, SWN and Victorious. With new  releases on the horizon and more live dates on the way, Flyte are definitely ones to keep an eye on.
