Premiere: flies+flies - Bad Crab Hand

Rhizomatic pop, anyone?
flies+flies

There's not a lot to go on when it comes to describing flies+flies.

The band are based in London, but then so are a lot of bands. They play what could loosely be described as post-rock with a melodic edge.

But then, so do a lot of bands. So what makes flies+flies stand out? Well, it could be their execution.

New track 'Bad Crab Hand' is redolent of Radiohead at their most coherent, or The Invisible at their most playful.

It's dark, for sure, but there's also a beautiful edge to the music flies+flies are attempting to accomplish. Artful without succumbing to pretence, it's intelligent but without excluding the directness emotion can offer.
