Listen: Flight Facilities perform Heart Attack with a full orchestra
The first taste of the upcoming FFxMSO live album, to drop next Friday.
In what was one of the biggest fomo-inducing events of 2015, Flight Facilities performed a once-in-a-lifetime show alongside the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra as a part of the annual Melbourne Festival program. With special guests such as Owl Eyes, Reggie Watts, George Maple, Katie Noonan and more, the crew performed a collection of singles and remixes from their discography which will now be turned into a live album for all the folks that couldn't grab tickets to the show back in October. Now, they have shared Heart Attack, a single featured on their debut album Down To Earth. Featuring vocals by Owl Eyes, the single was specifically re-made for the 90-piece orchestra, with twinkling keys and driving strings amongst Owl Eyes' vocals, Down To Earth samples and a touch of bass guitar courtesy of Touch Sensitive. The live album caps off what has been a monstrous year for the duo, who have headlined Laneway Festival, performed at Splendour In The Grass, Glastonbury and sold out 5000-person venues in the UK and beyond. The next step? A flick documenting their US bus tour, which will be released through Red Bull soon. In the meantime, check out the live performance of Heart Attack below and check out the Flight Facilities: Live with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra live album when it drops come December 18th.
