Flyte have recently returned with their lovely new EP “White Roses”, a release that they describe as a good preview of what’s to come for their eventual next album. Over the past few years, we’ve watched indie rockers Flyte  admiring their wonderful tunes It took many years but after the release of their terrific debut album The Loved Ones last year they finally announced their first appearance at SXSW in Austin, Texas and ended up following those dates with their debut New York performance, with the promise of some old songs but also, some new ones. This performance featured only half of the band, with Will Taylor and Nicolas Hill playing all the songs totally stripped down and acoustic.

The band hinted that they finished their new album, one that was described as a heavy break-up album. These songs were personal and heartbreaking, but with that whimsical folk charm that the band has been leaning into with precision with every new release. Along with “White Roses” and “I Still Believe In You” from the EP White Roses,  four other brand new songs, “Never Gonna Stop Trying To Break Your Heart,” “Never Get To Heaven,” “Everyone’s a Winner” and “Mistress America,” which was played for the very first time ever on their recent festival dates at the Deershed and 110 Above Festival .

These new songs have me really excited for the new album, The band soared as high as ever. They thanked the crowd for sticking with them for the new songs and then rewarded us with lavish performances of “Cathy Come Home” and “Faithless” from their superb debut and one of the best albums of 2017, The Loved Ones.
