Biography

Flicks originally started as a 3 piece Pop/Rock Band from Brisbane, Australia, which formed in late 2007. They worked hard writing and crafting their live performance playing 100 school shows over the next 2 years.

In 2009 Flicks commenced writing their first radio single Hayley, which was inspired by the lead singer of Paramore and all-around-hottie, Hayley Williams. Produced by Todd Morse (H20, The Offspring, Juliette Lewis) it was recorded at the Grove Studios in Gosford, Australia and was handed personally by the band to Hayley’s boyfriend Chad Gilbert of New Found Glory (who took it with no jealousy or animosity).

In 2010, Flicks recruited a new band member adding a slightly meatier sound with rhythm guitar/synth/gameboy and backing vocals. Flicks started the year with an extensive tour of Queensland with Short Stack and then headed south to NSW and Victoria for shows with Amy Meredith and Tonight Alive. They recently completed their own 3-week headlining tour of Regional Qld in June. Having returned from touring, the band signed a record deal with Spitfire/Difrnt Records and filmed a video clip for their first single. “Hayley” has a unique sound that consists of fun energetic Pop/Rock and euphoric electronic riffs that sets Flicks aside from other bands.

With Hugh Wheeler on drums, Adam Milad on guitar/lead vocals, Michael Thomas on bass/vocals and Andy Francis on guitar/synth/gameboy/backing vocals – Flicks are an upcoming band with their sights set on an international career in music. Watch out for the single which dropped on July 23rd! The film clip is being spun on Video Hits, The Hit List TV, Landed Music, and Rage.

Lyrics

Hayley

Written By: Milad, Thomas, Wheeler

Hayley it seems like every single day
That I see you and those silly games you play
Cause I know I wouldn’t stand a chance
But I’ll stick around just for a glance
My ship is sinking and I’m going down
You’ve gotta give me a sign Hayley I’ve waited all this time
I could wait forever but I can’t wait to make you mine

And Hayley you know those guys are all the same
And maybe one day you’ll think I’m not so lame
Even if I asked you to stay
I know you’d laugh and walk away
I’m going nowhere till I hit the ground
You’ve gotta give me a sign Hayley I’ve waited all this time
I could wait forever but I can’t wait to make you mine
One day I’ll make that call and you will save me from this fall

What’s the point of this stupid dream because I know that this would never happen to me
Hayley if I had the chance to show I hope you know that I would never let you go
I’d never let you go
I’d never let you go

Give me a sign Hayley I’ve waited all this time
I could wait forever but I can’t wait to make you mine
One day I’ll make that call and you will save me from this fall
