We are coming for you.
Flite's debut on the Kapiti Coast to fundraise for their East Coast tour in late April.
Winters ago, from the bitterly cold south coast of Wellington, Aotearoa - emerged FLITE.
After a 4 year semi-hibernation since their debut MARIANA's TRENCHCOAT; FLITE dusted off their wings re-emerging with their new single TRY TO FIND A WAY late last year.
Despite being a little late to the online social media(s), FLITE have been simmering below the surface, playing shows around the country over the years, as well as a few favourite festivals; TORA TORA TORA, Performance Arcade, and Newtown Festival to name a few.
FLITE, loosely described as an atmospheric-funk band, is comprised of the folk soul storytelling and guitar of Nikita 雅涵 Tu-Bryant (Nikita & the Spooky), the thick lush sounds of Moog synth bass and Rhodes of Ed Zuccollo (Trinity Roots), and the filthy drive and psychedelic tribal drums of Rick Cranson (Little Bushman).
In their live set you'll be taken on a storytelling journey over groove and soundscapes, with their signature epic and expansive sound.
'FLITE is one of those few bands, when you hear them; find yourself losing all concept of time because you are so completely utterly transfixed, and in-tune with their groove.'
- Bryn van Vilet (Tunes Of I)
'To experience a FLITE gig is to witness a stellar example of 3 strong musical identities running at each other at full speed and fusing together to create a synergy and oneness unparalleled on the scene today.'
- Adam Page (Wizard Tone Records)
With support from the soulful George Young.
$15 limited tickets available from UTR.
