Tonight We Fly
Tonight We Fly formed early in 2014 in Bath, Somerset, and are made up of members Jack Godby, Tom Summers, Ned French and Craig Spensely. The band seem perennially in love with the notion of true 'indie' music, referencing a time when the best place to hear British independent music was when it was being introduced (and occasionally played at the wrong speed) by John Peel, back in the days when BBC Radio 1 still saw a value in occasional risk-taking. They discovered Foof Records online, listened closely, made contact, and recorded some music. We chatted, and subsequently agreed to release their 4-track 'Sum' E.P.... a fine decision on our part, if we may say so.
Whilst their style may hark back to the 'shambling' bands of British indie music's early heyday, Tonight We Fly's attention to detail in both lyrics and music is formidable, and cheerfully rewards repeated listens, whilst the themes that run through their words (including the near-universal acknowledgement of a consistently empty 21st century wallet) mesh very nicely with our own disgruntled coffee-break discussions at Foof Towers... Tonight We Fly's music is a welcome reminder in these heady times that the ones convictions are oft best expressed with a sad-sack demeanour and an unwavering appreciation of persistently cloudy skies.
