Quartet led by guitarist and composer Alex Munk and featuring Matt Robinson (piano, synths, Fender Rhodes), Conor Chaplin (electric & acoustic bass) and Dave Hamblett (drums). Eponymous debut album released October 2016.
"Led by guitarist/composer Alex Munk the sound features a mix of electric & acoustic instruments to create a music that honours the past, from jazz to prog rock, but retains a very contemporary edge. "
"Another impressive offering from Flying Machines.The music to be heard on “New Life” reflects a road honed tightness, togetherness and sense of purpose. This is a band capable of a broad appeal."
