Australian alt-electronic duo Flight Facilities have continued their exciting 2021 with another new single. “Move,” which features the Chicago bred dance project DRAMA, sees two acts with a similar sonic identity coalesce without hindrance.
Working off a shared love of dance music from a previous era, the four collaborators in total ended up with a track that honors the past through the lens of the present. Old school piano chords and a minimal bass line bounce off each other while technological elements like coruscating arpeggios endow the song with a very modern feel.
Flight Facilities had this to say about “Move”:
“We’ve loved Drama’s sound since 2016, and in 2019 we finally found ourselves in an LA studio with the duo. In a session glued together by Jono Ma, we emerged with one of our favourite bassline driven jams to date. Subconsciously, a decade after releasing early 80’s inspired disco, our internal musical clocks have us creating early 90’s inspired dance. We couldn’t have asked for better collaborators than Via and Na’el to explore that genre with, and we’re just as lucky to call them friends. Whether you’re in the club, kitchen or a lockdown party of 1, ‘Move’ is our ode to piano house, and the pioneers of 909 drum-machine music.”
“Move” is the third single from Flight Facilities to be released in 2021. The output began with the robotic jam “The Ghost,” and continued with “Lights Up,” a soul infused collaboration with the Los Angeles’s Channel Tres. The duo will also go on tour with RÜFÜS DU SOL this November.
