"Fantastic... worth keeping your ears peeled for" – Drowned in Sound "The missing link between 'Von'-era Sigur Ros and the more experimental leanings of Explosions In The Sky” – Drowned in Sound "A brilliant melange of catchy vocal lines and droning, grunge fuzz" - The Line of Best Fit, track premiere for 'Factory' Flights of Helios have featured on BBC 6 Music (Steve Lamacq, Don Letts, Gideon Coe), BBC Radio 2, Amazing Radio and Radio X and performed at Glastonbury for BBC Introducing, Wilderness and Truck Festival. Big-hitting early single Factory was inspired by the Iñárritu film 'Biutiful', Underworld and Liars. Debut album Endings (2018) delivers widescreen emotion with sweeping post-rock style arrangements. Opening track 'Donalogue' is an otherworldly twelve minute version of a thousand-year old Irish ballad. I Loathe That I Did Love featured on Shakespeare-related folk album 'The Food Of Love Project', alongside modern folk luminaries Alasdair Roberts and Stornoway. Magpie / Beast collides garage rock with violin drones and math-rock guitars,
recounting a monumentally bad trip and a plea for peace, love and understanding in bewildering times. Single Tree and Fly (2020) is a psych-folk love song between a tree and a wasp... The tree is the giant African sycamore fig, the tiny wasp Agaonidae. The intricate mechanism connecting them is a marvel of evolution, a 60-million year relationship sustaining countless generations of animals from ants to elephants.
