Bio

Sydney garage-rockers Flight To Dubai dig up and reinvigorate the sound of early 70s rock and roll with deep assertive baritone vocals, scathing guitar riffs and their frenetic rhythm section. The volume of emotion and range resemble early proto-punk qualities and doo-wop inspired melodies that capture all the brightness and darkness in between happiness and pain, love and disconnection. The 4 piece is noted for their passionate and frantic live performance that have captured the eyes and ears of Australia.

Flight To Dubai unveil second single ‘Firefighter Lady’ (February 28th, independent) from upcoming EP ‘Strife’. The highly-anticipated EP recorded at Golden Retriever studios during 2019 with Simon Berckelman (Philadelphia Grand Jury) is set for release mid 2020. The underlying energy and recording process of the band still maintain familiar spirit of Flight To Dubai while capturing a redeveloped sound of proto-punk & rock n roll formula inspired by The Saints, New York Dolls, Devo and in modern times a shared alliance to Australian garage rock bands Royal Headache and Tyrannamen. The lyrical content explores love in an unadulterated fashion, reeling between extreme euphoria and true despair - more to be announced soon.

Feels like I've just walked into a tavern whilst a fist fight is in full flight. Not a macho modern aggressive one though, one of those old timey saloon ones where tables get overturned.
