Bands to Watch #155: Niteflights

By on Friday, 8th January 2010 at 12:00 pm
 

Carved out of the remains of Obviously 5 Believers (who released the single ‘The I’ll Be Leaving You’), 2009 proved a fruitful year for Niteflights. And with the release of their new EP that is already being well received, it seems 2010 could be better still. Performing blues rooted in folk, their debut EP titled ‘The Delightful Fall of Niteflights’ is out now. To support the release the band are to tour (dates below), and in-between it all is a support slot for Pete Doherty’s return to the Rhythm Factory later this month.

It’s been a while since a good hard working band have created anything even vaguely resembling ‘alternative’ (to what has become mainstream jangly-indie), so the arrival of this London five-piece is more than  welcome. They’re everything a new band should be, packed with hunger, dedication and best of all, tunes to make you merry. Get used to them as now you’re bound to hear more from them over the next 12 months!
