Regent Are Flying High As They Tease More From Sophomore LP Beggars Belief

Southampton indie-rockers Regent are barrelling into the new year with their latest single Flying High, taken from their upcoming sophomore LP Beggars Belief, which is due out sometime in the spring. A jubilant, jangling, romantic rock ’n’ roll track, Flying High finds the four-piece jetting that nostalgic glow of summer love into these colder months.

Fusing rampant electric guitar riffs with wistful, Britpop-inspired melodies and hopeful lyricism well-worthy of a windows-down singalong, the new track bubbles over with a relentless feeling of optimism as it nods to “faith, hope, love and everything in-between”.

Mixed by award-winning producer Chris Taylor and recorded at a friend’s studio in the band’s hometown of Southampton and dubbed an “upbeat, summery rock ’n’ roll love song” by Liam Gallagher-evoking frontman Ben Rooke, Flying High finds Regent soaring on a skyward trajectory of their own.

Listen to Flying High below:

Having forged a reputation as one of Southampton’s finest emerging acts, Regent have notched a string of highly-charged releases under their belts including recent EP Believe and 2022 debut LP Just A Revolution.

With the band’s recent singles Here We Go Again, Can’t You See and Freight Train capturing the band’s continued ability to pioneer their own insurgent brand of rock ’n’ roll, the Southampton five-piece tackle political mistrust, economic struggles and personal hardships head-on.

Flying High follows Liberation and Oh No, I Know as the third track to be taken from the group’s forthcoming second album Beggars Belief. The group’s merciless sound has also attracted attention across the world of TV and sport, with airplay on Soccer AM, Sky Sports Darts, the Premier League, BBC Six Nations Rugby, BT Sport and BBC One’s Match of the Day.

As they gear up to release Beggars Belief later this year, 2023 saw Regent complete a busy summer of live shows including a string of festivals and a support slot with Reverend & The Makers.
