Flyte

Hailing from London, England, alternative pop/rock outfit Flyte meld bright vocal melodies akin to those of MGMT and Orange Juice with the buzzy guitar work of Franz Ferdinand and Cage the Elephant. Made up of lead vocalist/guitarist Will Taylor, guitarist/keyboardist Sam Berridge, bass guitarist Nick Hill, and drummer Jon Supran, the band formed while at school, with Taylor and Supran writing songs after studies every day. Following the addition of Berridge and Hill, the boys got to work performing in and around London before going into the studio to record their debut EP. An independent release, Live, was recorded in one day with Dan Grech-Marguerat (Lana Del Rey, Moby), and lead track "Over and Out" went on to receive repeated airplay on major radio stations around the U.K. Flyte released the single "We Are the Rain" via Paradyse Records in early 2014 before signing with Island and making their label debut with the single "Light Me Up" before putting out their second EP, Diamond White, at Christmas that year. The band's fan base continued to grow following their appearance at the 2014 Reading and Leeds Festivals. They went on to release two singles in 2015, "Closer Together" and "Please Eloise," before heading out on tour with bands such as MS MR, Hudson Taylor, and Bombay Bicycle Club. Flyte's debut full-length effort, The Loved Ones, was produced by Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, the Drones) and was released in August 2017. Following several months of touring, Flyte returned to the studio with a pair of stand-alone singles, "Moon Unit" and "Victory Girls." ~ Rob Wacey
