“Arty Boy” is a dance floor filler. Its charming instrumentals are met with the beautiful vocals from Brisbane singer/songwriter and one of Flight Facilities’ frequent collaborators, Emma Louise. The duo (Jimmy Lyell and Hugo Gruzman) also invited German collective Jünglinge film to direct the song’s visuals with a documentary-style insight into the forgotten world of Irani-German couple Shirin & Nasser: Friends of Arnold Schwarzenegger, the elderly couple walk us through their temple of memories dedicated to sculpted bodies, glamour and bizarre 80s environments.
The bespoke “Arty Boy” artwork arrives from Vogue recognized Danish artist, Christiane Spangsberg. Following a sold-out exhibition in Sydney earlier this year, Spangsberg presents a chic visual statement for Flight Facilities’ newest offering. Alongside Vogue, Spansberg’s work has appeared in Harper’s Bazaar and Unconditional Magazine.
“Arty Boy” is instant vindication. Once again, Flight Facilities’ seamless production has preceded them with a single that will no doubt be as infinite as any other in their stunning archive. Watch here
