One Flew East are set to unleash their funk drenched piano pop/rock onto Sydney as they headline SOSUEME at Qbar on Fri May 1, handing out free copies of their latest release, “The Molotov Sessions”. Tix are $10 on the door, and Polyphonic Children & Nicholas Cole will be supporting on the night.
Stepping into the studio for one afternoon, One Flew East recorded their new tracks completely live, with the help of engineer Anthony The (Youth Group, The Vines).
Donning the CD a “Live EP”, the raw energy that is witnessed at a One Flew East show can be felt throughout the recordings. With no overdubbing, no multitracking (And no Autotune®, of course), the end sound is the electricity of four musicians vibing off each other, going completely mental.
“The Molotov Sessions” will be given away for free, both digitally and physically.
“At the risk of sounding like a home loan ad, let’s be honest – everyone’s pockets are a little empty at the moment, us included! If we ever wanted people to hear our music, we had to record these tracks live, and giving them away is just another step in that process” says Rich Lucano (Songwriter, Vocals/Keys).
The tracks featured on the Live EP showcase One Flew East’s funk sensibilities, while painting a picture of their explosive pop/rock style, citing influences such as The Police, RHCP, The Roots & Stevie Wonder.
In the short time since their conception, One Flew East have received a MusicOz Award nomination, won the Jager Uprising ’08 Semi Final (Final in July ’09), received airplay on FBi & JTV, and packed out Sydney hot spots such as World Bar, The Annandale, Q-Bar (Sosueme), The Hopetoun, & many more.
One Flew East will be hitting the road in June for an East Coast tour, before heading back into the studio with Anthony The to record their debut studio EP.
