Tina Malone (who starred in the UK’s Shameless) takes the lead role in Flyte‘s eerie new video “I’ve Got A Girl.” The actress – who had escaped her hospital bed that day to be on the shoot – exclaimed on arrival “I love this song and I need to be allowed to work, otherwise I’ll fucking die!” The track, which premiered on Lauren Laverne’s BBC 6 Music show and was picked up by, among other outlets, NPR’s NMF is another peek behind the veil of Flyte’s next big body of work.
To their intensely loyal fanbase, Flyte are something of a well kept secret. In recent times, Florence Pugh, Bon Iver, Paul Mescal and even Lewis Capaldi have all shown their love for the band. The trio moved to LA earlier this year to record with collaborators Justin Raisen (Angel Olsen, Ariel Pink), Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Bon Iver) and mixing engineer Ali Chant (Aldous Harding). First releases “Easy Tiger” and “Losing You” served as an introduction to a remarkably poignant breakup record, following a tumultuous year for singer Will Taylor. “I’ve Got A Girl” depicts the eroding of a different kind of relationship; breaking up with a band member.
