Flying is a collective of four artists translating magic words and mysterious noises into chaotically sweet and ardent performances. Howling, complex, disheveled, gentle and playful, their music is at once intimate and otherworldly. It is new-dream-out-jazz-pop-noise-folk, invoking spirits Stevie Wonder, Sun Ra, Brigitte Fontaine, and Os Mutantes. Contemporary points of reference include Animal Collective, Maher Shalal Hash Baz, and Deerhoof.FLYING GENRES
Just-one-second-ago-broken Eggshell is Flying's debut full-length is out now on Mill Pond Records. The album was recorded at home, on beaches, in barns and fields over 6 months. Old accordions, broken pianos, buzzing guitars, thickets of drum claps mingle with harsh trills and murky creaks. Influenced by everything, Eggshell is nonetheless a search and discovery mission, a set of narratives balanced between song and sound, a testament of anxiety and hope; a dense, fantastic adventure.
Based out of Brooklyn, Flying have been playing around NYC and the Northeast for the past year and a half with such bands as Deerhoof, Tunnel of Love, USAisamonster, Dirty Projectors, and Lavender Diamond.

"Their instrumentation and delivery suggests people who were never told or cared to learn the usual or "proper" ways of doing things…One of the most charming and original-sounding bands I've heard in a long time."
"One of the most original and complex indie-rock bands to have come out this millenium…Flying is a breath of fresh air." – Aural Minority
