The Flying So High-Os
Drawing from a wide spectrum of influences, including punk, indie, folk & reggae, The Flying So High-Os have honed an original sound with strong pop sensibilities. Stirring melodies paired with darker, polarising lyrical layers are the group's trademark.
Jack R Reilly
Having established himself as a solo musician over the past 7 years, the addition of a live band adds a vast landscape of depth to Reilly's already intimate and engaging live show.
After meeting at a show in Philadelphia, and later hanging out at Fest 16 in Florida, Signals Midwest and Carb on Carb come together again in Adelaide of all places for a ripper of a double headline show.
Signals Midwest have been a mainstay of heartfelt American punk rock, releasing 3 albums on the impeccable Tiny Engines label, and leaving countless basement shows breathless. Frontman Max Stern is no stranger to Australia, having toured before solo and with Meridian.
Honorary and sometimes actual Aussie residents Carb on Carb will be back from New Zealand with a shiny new single, a promise of an album and 23kg checked + 7kg carry-on packed with riffs. Part of the Aotearoa Emo Revival, their music is direct and relatable. Songs about dogs, parents and making mistakes.
Catch them both at the Crown & Anchor on Wednesday March 14 with locals Bec Stevens and Superdose Gangway.
Melbourne four-piece, The Flying So High-Os, are gearing up for a big year, starting with their very first New Zealand tour.
Having spent the last few years on the Australian tour circuit, including shows alongside Australian staples such as Camp Cope, Jess Locke and The Smith Street Band, and international bands They Might Be Giants and Jeff Rosenstock, the hard-folk outfit are ready to head across the ditch.
Drawing from a wide spectrum of influences including punk, indie, folk & reggae, The Flying So High-Os have honed an original sound with strong pop sensibilities. Stirring melodies paired with darker, polarising lyrical layers are the group's trademark.
The Flying So High-Os have just finished recording a new album with Michael 'Fitzy' Fitzgerald (of The Smith Street Band and Pool House Records), which is due out later this year. It is set to be their most focused musical output yet, raising the bar from their previous releases, split EP, In Describing The Motion Of Indescribable Bodies, and debut album, Life As A Common Noun.
The Flying So High-Os will be touring New Zealand's North Island for the first time this February.
