Bio

Sydney garage-rock outfit Flight To Dubai dig up and reinvigorate the sound of early 70s rock and roll. With trademark baritone vocals, scathing guitar and frenetic rhythm section, renowned for their energetic and heart-on-sleeve demeanour the 4-piece share resembling qualities of proto-punk and doo-wop inspired melodies.

Their latest success of ‘Strife’ (EP) released via their own independent label Hail Damage Records and recorded by Simon Berckelman (Philadelphia Grand Jury) received strong backing from sold out shows, community radio rotation, national TV broadcast on Rage (ABC), publication coverage and debuted 2nd & 3rd on AIR’s indie charts.

Flight To Dubai are noted for their passionate and frantic live performance which was quickly affirmed by countless headline shows around the country and have landed the band to support Australian acts such as The Chats, Lime Cordiale, Pist Idiots, Gooch Palms, The Pinheads, A. Swayze and the Ghosts and Crocodylus.

The band kept creative during the absence of live music in 2020. Inspired to launch their own independent label Hail Damage Records to help distribute physical releases domestically and globally with the aim to help likeminded musicians. Since the return of lock-down the band have adapted to restrictions covering renditions of inspired artist and their own repertoire in a stripped back version followed by a run of sold out headline shows to promote ‘Strife’ (EP).

2021 will see Flight To Dubai focus on writing new music and returning to live music when possible.
