flies+flies Short Info

Milk & Peppers EP OUT NOW. Plays on Radio 1 (Sophie Little / Huw Stephens) and BBC 6 (Guy Garvey, Tom Robinson).

"Sometimes you hear something that strikes you to the core something that is so good you think why has no-one else ever sounded like this...Describing their sound isn't easy but if a mad scientist blended the dna of Radiohead, The Associates, The Wild Beasts, The Philharmonic Orchestra, Prince, early Human League Nick Cave, and Pink Floyd, flies and flies would probably be the result.". The Devil Has the Best Tuna 'Tips for 2017'

"Electronics meets guitar meets cello, the project's work expresses complex ideas in a minimal pop fashion". Clash

Described by Crack magazine as ‘resoundingly contemporary’, London-based 3 piece flies+flies take elements of lo-fi rock, electronic club music, avant-classical, & pop to produce a sound that veers from belting apocalyptic transmissions to quiet reflective modern hymns.

They have drawn comparisons to a huge breadth of artists, from ‘Radiohead at their most coherent’ & Mogwai to ‘an updated goth version of Yazoo’, and “Depeche Mode’s finest
work”.

They prefer, however, to refer to their music simply as ‘dark pop’ - at the centre of which is Dan Griffis’ deeply melodic songwriting and tales of failed romance and social voyeurism, creating a sonic snapshot of life & precarity in London 2016.

"It's dark, for sure, but there's also a beautiful edge to the music flies+flies are attempting to accomplish. Artful without succumbing to pretence, it's intelligent but without excluding the directness emotion can offer." Clash.
