Flight Facilities announce AU/NZ tour with new single, Need You
The Australian electronic pilots will also be playing the travelling Groovin' The Moo festival.
The road to Flight Facilities' forthcoming second album has been a long one, but it's been fruitful. First came the dulcet and charming collaboration with Emma Louise, Arty Boy, which was then followed up by Stranded – a long-winded piece of art which saw the pairing collaborate with names including Reggie Watts and Broods. The single showed off two different sides to Flight Facilities; the former demonstrating their knack for catchy, pop-centric electronica, and the latter seemingly following up from Clair De Lune in creating spectacular, tender beauty from music. Need You, featuring the vocals from rising New Zealand musician NÏKA, sits somewhere in between, feeling remarkably nostalgic with its smooth funk stride which provokes comparisons to one of their early break-out singles in Foreign Language.
The single comes alongside the announcement of their returning Australian headline tour, with dates in a couple of the capital cities joining regional shows at Groovin' The Moo. "We’re at what feels like a real turning point in our career", says Jimmy – one half of Flight Facilities – on the impending tour. "Our lives as individuals are changing and so too is our vision for the band." Check out the tour dates below, and grab your pre-sales HERE on Monday, March 5.
