The London group can now add jet-setters to their list of accomplishments, following a recent visit to Australia where they put the finishing touches to their long-awaited debut album at the hands of super producer Burke Reid. While the album cuts still remain concealed in the present moment, this doesn’t limit the band from previewing a taste of what’s to come, in such appears the inspired ‘Victoria Falls’.
Filmed at St Leonard’s Church in Shoreditch as one in a series of intimate captures which document the band’s live dynamic, the tape sees Flyte at their raw and most resonant best, with all four members joining together in a modest interplay of engaging lure.
Their knack for writing nuanced stories, that are rooted in real life, remains at the core but just like their sonics, there’s a new maturity brought forth. A sense of evolutionary development weighs grand over this chapter of Flyte, yet this succession of progress is sweet and not bitter at all. The band infuse rather than rebuild their character, further complimenting their alternative approach to classic modernist pop.
The new single ‘Victoria Falls’ is out now via Island Records. Find on iTunes here.
