Premiere: J. Flyger Shares Debut Solo Collection 'Luck'

Tuesday 26th June, 2018 11:07AM

London-based songwriter J. Flyger (singer and guitarist of Auckland's Popstrangers, and touring member of DMAs) has unveiled his debut solo collection Luck, following up on his very fine recent single 'Tomi Honda'. Produced in "various bedrooms and lounges” with additional recording taking place in Auckland alongside Thomas Healy, the five songs conjure introspective yet catchy worlds of sound, with feelings of gentle psychedelia permeating each scraggly-edged track. Flyger kindly lifted the lid on the origins of his new EP and upcoming plans, read his words and listen to Luck below...

"It’s taken a long time to get around to releasing new music as I lost confidence for awhile in music and I wasn’t really enjoying hearing recordings of my voice back. I was still making demos at home but just abandoning them before finishing them and not showing anyone. I just feel the last thing anyone needs is another male singer songwriter.

But I ended up playing a set at a live show my friend was putting on. It was off the cuff and I put together most of the songs that week - but the people that came basically are the reason I have put this EP together by encouraging me to do it. The songs from the EP don’t have a strong cohesive theme but are more about things going on with friends and my life and thoughts over the last few months.

I’m planning on continuing to record and release more music throughout the year as it’s a good way to actually allow the music to leave you and therefore not dwell on it. I’ve had a good response so far so will most likely release a record in the new year and play more shows."

J. Flyger is playing at Auckland's Strange Haven on Thursday 5th July alongside Ron Gallipoli, Meer and guests.
