The Line Of Best Fit – ‘pounding beats and gargantuan synths immerses the listener in a pool of sonics and timbres that seem to perfectly delineate the intangible genius of The Flight’
The Flight, comprised of duo Joe Henson and Alexis Smith, return with the SARAH EP to be released via Apologetic Recordings on July 1st. This, their third extended play, comes after previous EP releases Hangman and The Sinner Inside. It features the vocals of Kami Thompson, who makes up one half of folk-rock band The Rails.
The duo have, to date, worked with some of the industry’s biggest names including Lana Del Rey, as well as composing major soundtracks for such renowned titles as Assassin’s Creed and Alien Isolation, the latter gaining them a BAFTA Games Awards nomination. Their debut Hangman EP featured vocals from Keaton Henson.
‘Sarah’ marks the pair’s latest songwriting foray, an immediately engrossing cut which teases their upcoming SARAH EP. The track, which begins life stripped in its folk-pop essence, is quick to assert its broader spectacle – the deep, bass weight of the likes of Massive Attack begin to creep in, combined with wide-reaching, synth-lined choral breaks.
