‘a direct, driving sound that bears comparison to Arcade Fire. The songwriting has a real punch to it’. Clash
Think of Flight Brigade as a family as much as a seven-strong band and you start to understand the chemistry between them. Think of their songs as epic stories to which each member is essential and you begin to grasp what makes their music so powerful. Watch them perform and you can’t fail to be struck by the special bond they share.
Flight Brigade’s strength in numbers suits the scope of their songs. The grand orchestral sweeps, the crunching anthemic guitars. With male/female vocals and strings set amidst synths and heavy guitars, their explosive live show, 'feels as if Arcade Fire had a face off with Fleetwood Mac and Renaissance came in for the kill'.
Festival appearances have included Glastonbury, Bestival, The Great Escape, Beautiful Days, Larmer Tree, Blissfields and Boomtown. In 2016 they released their debut album 'Our Friends Our Enemies'. Named one of Time Out’s ‘Rising Stars’, radio play includes Dan O'Connell Radio X, Steve Lamacq and Tom Robinson BBC 6, Gary Crawley BBC Introducing London, Bob Harris and Janice Long BBC Radio 2 (including live session) and Tom Allen CBC Radio 2, Canada. In Germany they reached number 13 on the college airplay charts. Their songs have been used on Channel 4's ‘Made In Chelsea’, 'Tattoo Fixers' and ‘Sunday Brunch’. They are recording their second album with producer Chris Porter (David Bowie, George Michael).
