“Sweet, lyrical passages blend with impossible prog-like time signatures to create a fresh, modern sound with its own distinctive character” LondonJazzNews
“Heartbreaking melodies that hang, shimmering, until someone just has to let loose” Cellars and Lofts
Flying Machines is the new band from guitarist Alex Munk, featuring some of the UK’s brightest young stars, Matt Robinson (piano), Conor Chaplin (bass) and Dave Hamblett (drums). Centred on Alex’s unique compositional approach, Flying Machines has established a sound that is entirely its own, fusing visceral, rock-out guitar improv with anthemic melodies and lusciously textured soundscapes. It’s a sound shot through with the here and now of London’s ruggedly innovative jazz scene, a decadent mash up of free-wheeling improvisations, prog rock energy and ambient meditations that never detracts from the emotive lyricism at the music’s core.
Having spent the last year or so touring all over the UK to rave reviews, the group has now recorded its first album, set for release on October 14th 2016.
