Oxford space-pop/shoegaze septet Flights of Helios combine reverb-drenched post-rock guitar drones with spiralling, caustic electronica and heart-stopping vocals.
Flights of Helios have played Glastonbury 2014 (BBC Introducing), Artrocker New Blood, Wilderness and Truck festivals. Single Factory has been played on 6Music (Steve Lamaqc), XFM (John Kennedy) and Amazing Radio (Simon Raymonde).
“Fantastic … worth keeping your ears peeled for”
“The missing link between Von-era Sigur Ros and the more experimental leanings of Explosions In The Sky – ACE”
– Drowned in Sound
“A brilliant melange of catchy vocal lines and droning, grunge fuzz”
– The Line of Best Fit, track premiere for Factory
“Exceptional and odd, bringing evocative hints of Elysian 60’s pop like the Zombies to some serenely medicated Spiritualized passages”
