flies+flies - Dark-Pop Postrock Alternative Indietronica Melodic Live Act in London

flies+flies Short Info

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.
