Today the UK’s Flyte share new single, “I’ve Got A Girl,” another peek behind the veil of Flyte’s next big body of work. Recorded in LA with a dream team of collaborators from producers Justin Raisen (Angel Olsen, Ariel Pink), Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Bon Iver) to mixing engineer Ali Chant (Aldous Harding), first releases “Easy Tiger” and “Losing You” were an introduction to a remarkably poignant breakup record, with romance at the heart. “I’ve Got A Girl” depicts the eroding of a different kind of relationship; portraying an all too familiar break up with a creative partner, friend, or band member.
“Where all the other tracks on this record are about a romantic relationship coming to an end, this covers the loss of a creative one. Breaking up with a friend and band member. There’s definitely a bitterness listening back to it, but at its core is the sound of a band completely letting go and having a genuinely cathartic time. We recorded it very late at night and more than a little intoxicated,” says lead singer Will Taylor.
