Flight Brigade Live at Strings Bar & Venue
Strings Bar & Venue, Newport.
This event is for over 16s only - No refunds will be issued for under 16s.
Flight Brigade’s sound is as distinctive as it is unique. Infectious melodies and hooks flow through songs that at times exude fierce energy and at others gentle poignancy. With grand orchestral sweeps, crunching anthemic guitars, strings and synths, their explosive performances feel like it’s their last day on earth! Made up of family members and childhood friends, their bond shines through in their live shows.
Festival appearances have included Glastonbury, Bestival, The Great Escape, Beautiful Days, Blissfields, and Boomtown as well as Reeperbahn in Germany. Named one of Time Out’s ‘Rising Stars’, radio play has included, Dan O’Connell Radio X; Steve Lamacq & Tom Robinson on BBC 6 Music; Bob Harris and Janice Long on BBC Radio 2 and Gary Crowley on BBC Introducing London. Their songs have also been used on ‘Made In Chelsea’, Channel 4’s ‘Sunday Brunch’ and E4’s ‘Tattoo Fixers’.
Whilst touring their debut album, the band caught the ear of esteemed producer Chris Porter (George Michael, Elton John, Bowie) and were invited to record their second album live at The Visconti Studio which is due for release autumn 2019. New single ‘Fury Road’ is taken from this and will be released in March. It’s a high energy, raucous track about the triumph and fragility of human relationship. With signature poetic lyrics and infectious hooks, it’s typical of this album’s sound, being steeped in vintage synths, ethereal male/female harmonies and cosmic guitar riffs.
