"It’s bleak but Christmas is bleak for a lot of people..."

Flyte have shared their moving ode to festive anxiety - check out 'Won't Be Home For Christmas' now.

The band recently packed out London's Village Underground, unveiling some magnificent new material in the process.

New single 'Won't Be Home For Christmas' is online now, but it definitely isn't a Wizzard or Slade retread.

Instead, Flyte focus on the shadow side of the festive season, an "ode to the people who find themselves alone on December 25th..."

Soothing harmonies matched to a yacht pop bedrock, it plays it entirely straight, a focussed, nuanced, and unapologetic take that constructs "a song about a family falling apart".

Flyte explain...

"We had this sudden urge to make a Christmas song. There was something about travelling around America this autumn (especially with the huge skies and sunshine) that felt fittingly incongruous with the wintery sadness of Christmas back in England."

They add: "It’s bleak but Christmas is bleak for a lot of people."
