Here’s Another Banger from Flight Facilities — ‘Need You’ feat. NÏKA

My favorite Aussie boys have done it yet again. After surprising us with that beautiful “curve ball” of a single ‘Stranded’ (featuring Broods, Reggie Watts, and Saro), Flight Facilities launched a new song that pays homage to the sound they have been famous for.

‘Need You’ sounds like a more grown-up version of the duo’s 2014 hit ‘Crave You’. In fact, you can even hear the same* dancey drumlines from the latter all throughout the new song. Aside from this, Hugo and Jimmy made sure they injected their signature funky basslines and disco-esque synths, making the song more accessible to retired EDM/pop-loving folks.

Fans of the guys will agree that this wouldn’t be a Flight Facilities song if they do not feature their trademark female vocals in their creation. This time, Broods’ younger sister NÏKA lent her dreamy, enchanting voice, making the song unusually nostalgic and reminiscent of so many hits from the 80s.

This is definitely a shoo-in in my 18 of 2018.

Enjoy the video above, or listen to it on Soundcloud or Spotify. Or you can catch Flight Facilities live in their upcoming tour (crossing my fingers and toes that they drop by Southeast Asia soon).🤞

 

 

*Yes, I noticed this because I listened to it at least 7x straight since they launched it yesterday

Lenno – Good Thing (EP)

I’ve been waiting for this release since I first heard one of his singles “Fever” (which, btw, I reviewed here last year). And I must say, this 15-minute long EP is worth putting on loop all day. Lenno has this knack of using classic nu-wave/discotheque beats, bass lines, and synths you’d normally hear from classic 80s and 90s tracks. For someone who’s only in his early 20s, he’s making songs that our parents can tolerate listening to.

All tracks are standouts, it’s so hard to choose just one. The whole vibe of his album is everything I’m looking for in an electropop/synthpop song. You’d find yourself including his songs in your springtime/summertime beachparty playlists.

For more of Lenno, check out his Soundcloud, like his Facebook page, and follow him on Songkick to get updates on where he’ll be playing live next.
