Does the new Flights album take off (sorrynotsorry). Here's what we made of 'History Be Kind'.
A Google search for this lot may only currently bring up the rates of air passenger duty, but with a first album as impressive as ‘History Be Kind’, we doubt it’ll be long before Flights are making their presence felt across Blighty. The Bristol band are onto a winner with an innovative noise that boasts as much elevated and majestic post-rock (‘Storms’) as it does tumbling alt-rock (‘Borrowed Time’). Such thirst for progression is unusual on a debut, but this bright quartet display no desire to play things safe, shifting time signatures and emitting first class harmonies like it’s second nature.
