Debut single ‘We Are The Rain’ released 28th April on paradYse records Bombay Bicycle Club support dates announced Flyte also confirmed for The Great Escape, Live at Leeds and Liverpool Sound City London four piece Flyte today announce the release of their debut single ‘We Are The Rain’ on paradYse records. Drawing on the off-kilter funk sensibilities of Talking Heads, LCD Soundsystem and Orange Juice, Flyte's songs are infectiously melodic, and their exuberant live performances have seen a strong word of mouth buzz grow. Lead singer Will Taylor describes ‘We Are The Rain’ as being ‘about monotonous relationships that continue for no reason other than comfort’ with the song’s wry lyrics taking in Desert Island Discs and April showers, demonstrating a classically understated British eccentricity reminiscent of The Kinks or The Smiths. Their DIY debut 'Live EP' (released in September 2013) was recorded in just a day and quickly found mainstream radio supporters in the shape of Radio 1’s Zane Lowe and Fearne Cotton. Produced by Dan Grech-Marguerat (Circa Waves, Chloe Howl, The Vaccines, Lana Del Rey), ‘We Are The Rain’ is Flyte’s first single proper, and sees the band continuing to perfect their sound and songwriting craft.
