Combining their familiar expressive vocals with synth, bowed and strummed strings, Flight Brigade in the title track and first of the four, once again deliver an impressive composition. Whilst awash with texture, the song has greater urgency than much of their music previously featured.
This pacier style, which is driven by drums sitting more to the foreground, doesn’t mean that Flight Brigade are unable to explore the eddies of U Kill Me as the range of instrumentation is still given space to express the emotion of the song as do the alternating in voices through the track.
Back in 2012 what was then an English alt-folk band Flight Brigade were introduced, now evolved into a synth-indie ensemble.
As regular readers will know, most bands fall by the way-side very quickly, which is precisely why the website exists, to catch those shimmering explosions of brief light and afford them a more permanent home, so it is always a pleasure to come back to bands who have survived that initial few months of bursting energy to become part of the firmament.
Flight Brigade are set to release the EP Stealing Fire on the 23rd October. From the release – When We Were Young.
