Biography

Flying is a collective of four artists translating magic words and
mysterious noises into chaotically sweet and ardent performances.
Howling, complex, disheveled, gentle and playful, their music is at
once intimate and otherworldly. It is
new-dream-out-jazz-pop-noise-folk, invoking spirits Stevie Wonder, Sun
Ra, Brigitte Fontaine, and Os Mutantes. Contemporary points of
reference include Animal Collective, Maher Shalal Hash Baz, and
Deerhoof.

Just-one-second-ago-broken Eggshell is Flying's debut full-length, out
soon on Mill Pond Records. The album was recorded at home, on beaches,
in barns and fields over 6 months. Old accordions, broken pianos,
buzzing guitars, thickets of drum claps mingle with harsh trills and
murky creaks. Influenced by everything, Eggshell is nonetheless a
search and discovery mission, a set of narratives balanced between
song and sound, a testament of anxiety and hope; a dense, fantastic
adventure.

Based out of Brooklyn, Flying have been playing around NYC and the
Northeast for the past year and a half with such bands as Deerhoof,
Tunnel of Love, USAisamonster, Dirty Projectors, and Lavender
Diamond. Look for their US tour this summer.
