Since their arrival in 2009, Flight Facilities have proven themselves to be one of electronic music’s most consistently popular songwriting duos. Their first hit, ‘Crave You’, has become the unofficial soundtrack to summer parties from Sydney to Stockholm, and they’ve since deployed six successful singles, including the self-released slow-burner ‘Clair De Lune’, which went Gold in Australia. They’ve racked up serious air miles, touring the globe and playing headline shows and festivals in every major destination, from Coachella to Falls Festival and their recent ‘Stand Still’ tour saw them selling out huge rooms for over three months.
In 2013, Flight Facilities mastered the art of time travel, with a forty-year spanning ‘Decades Mix’ series that took their fans on a whirlwind tour through their proliferate influences and expansive taste.
Flight Facilities dropped a bombshell on unsuspecting, devoted fans, releasing their debut album Down To Earth on Future Classic/Glassnote, on October 24. It’s not just a new chapter, it’s a whole new altitude; bound together through ornate instrumental interludes in the seamless style of some of the boys’ favourite records, like Cut Copy’s In Ghost Colours and Metronomy’s English Riviera. There are some unexpected guests – in time-honoured form – dotted throughout this unexpected Flight Facilities journey. Some of the guests waiting in the departure lounge include the divine Ms Emma Louise, New York’s most soulful comedian, Reggie Watts, a star turn from Melbourne’s Owl Eyes, a foray into hip-hop with hotly tipped rapper Bishop Nehru, along with existing favourites like Micky Green and Giselle.
