Flight Brigade Chased By Wolves Down Fury Road

Flight Brigade have released the brand new video for their upcoming single, Fury Road.

Due for official release on 22nd March, it’s the lead track from the alternative indie-rock band’s upcoming studio album, Chased By Wolves.

The follow-up to 2016’s debut LP Our Friends Our Enemies was recorded at The Visconti Studio at the invitation of producer Chris Porter, who’s worked with the likes of David Bowie, Elton John, and George Michael. Porter, who saw the band play at Manchester’s The Castle exactly two years ago, was impressed by a live show that’s taken Flight Brigade around the UK, including festivals like The Great Escape, Bestival, and Glastonbury.

The coming weeks will see the seven-piece band hit the road once more, kicking off a four-week run of shows with a performance at Camden Rocks on 21st March that’s bound to show off the interpersonal chemistry they’re known for.

“Our relationship drives everything we do,” explains lead singer Ollie Baines. “Our sound is all of our influences and the tension between them.”

It doesn’t hurt that there’s an actual family at the heart of Flight Brigade. Ollie (on vocals and rhythm guitar) is married to Miriam (vocals/synth), whose sister Dorry Macaulay sings and plays violin. All three grew up in a hippy commune in Hampshire, while bassist Tom Clay, guitarist Thomas Pink, keyboard player Jonny Barker, and drummer Neil Blandford were childhood friends who lived nearby.

Musically the emotionally stirring band have been compared to Arcade Fire and Fleetwood Mac, while Ollie’s lyrics are more intimate and personal. Chased By Wolves, due to be released on 6th September, unwraps the beauty and fragility of relationships, pays homage to his brother’s battle with epilepsy, and deals with the ‘wolves’ of the music industry.
