Nothing compares to the drive and passion of Flight Brigade. A folk rock band that captivates the imagination and arrests your attention. Uniquely talented and brimming with charisma, the band have come a long way in such a short time and look set to make 2016 their year.
The band is centred around the amalgamation of two families, the Baines and the Hughes, with other members added for good measure. Lead singer Oliver Baines, the eldest of four brothers, is married to vocalist and string player Miriam Hughes. They are joined by bass player Clay, drummer Blanford, Pink on lead guitar and Baker adding vocals and piano parts.
2015 saw a flurry of activity for the band with the release of their EP Stealing Fire. The band were also featured on the Channel 4 programme Sunday Brunch. The summer saw them play to packed out stages at Bestival on the Isle Of Wight and the legendary Glastonbury Festival.
They have continued flourishing with song When We Were Young featured as Shock Of The New on Radio X.
This April sees the release of their new four track EP U Kill Me. A fantastic forerunner to their debut album set to be released in Autumn this year. The tracks were mixed by Donald Clark (The Knife, Muse) and Brian Virtue (30 Seconds To Mars, Jane’s Addiction, Deftones) and mastered by Grammy-nominated Mandy Parnell.
