Fly Sonata is a future-soul outfit formed of Tuala, George, Matt, Simon and Finn who got together through shared a passion for song-writing and have since been steadily crafting a raw and engaging sound. With a plethora of influences and styles they have been likened to bands such a Hiatus Kaiyote, Erykah Badu & Little dragon.
Similarly, the vocals are delivered with a percussive and soulful edge, choosing angular but hooky lines over the groove-heavy rhythm section. They pluck all the best bits from Soul and Hip-Hop to Gospel and Jazz, making it practically impossible not to nod your head.
Their self-titled, debut EP came out in 2019 and has already prompted lots of interest but the band are already hard at work creating a second and playing shows here, there and everywhere, Be sure to keep an eye out for one near you.
“Discreetly below the surface of the beautifully organic and engaging sound of Fly Sonata lies the creative fusion of vast musical influence and remarkable technical complexity”
“One of Brighton's freshest soul bands"
