Guildford based Melody-Punksters ‘Fly This For Me’
hurl out their breathtaking debut EP ‘Making Shadows’ on 16th July 2012 available through iTunes and Spotify.
Pitching the bone-crushing power and dexterity of the Foo Fighters against the earnest drive of Alexisonfire, and rounded off with the hooks of Blink 182, ‘Fly This For Me’ genuinely offer a fresh take on the currently over-saturated punk-pop genre.
Although Fly This For Me officially formed and honed their sound in late 2011 out of the leafy suburbs of Surrey, the band members have migrated from all over the UK; Sean (Guitar/ Vocals) hails from South Wales, Tim (Lead Vocals) is primarily from Yorkshire (although has been known to have routes in various other corners of the globe), Hannah (Bass/Vocals) comes from Oxfordshire, George (Guitar/Vocals) originates from Essex, and Joe (Drums/ Vocals) is homegrown and resides in Guildford.
Over the past year, the animated upstarts have toured throughout the UK serving up a sound that is a hearty combination of heavy, gritty guitar parts laced with inter-woven harmonies and vocals delivered with true belief. Along the way, the five-some have amassed an impressive following and have already cut their teeth supporting the likes of Blitz Kids, Feed the Rhino, Lost Boys, Marines, Eager Teeth, fiN, and POLAR, to name just a few.
Fly This For Me are now ready to up the ante with the release of their debut record, ‘Making Shadows’. The lively quintet have marked Monday 16th July as the national release date for their record, which is an enticing hook heavy affair that brims with alluring harmonies and boasts a cluster of earnest and driving tracks. From the delectable catchy opening of ‘She Said,’ to the scathing dynamism of ‘Rock Bottom’, the record showcases the band’s raw sincerity. And the title track (and first single) ‘Making Shadows’, has a contagious refrain that will need to be prised from the inside of your head. With a UK tour lined up for the summer, the band are poised to make a name for themselves by the end of the year.
