“Fantastic … worth keeping your ears peeled for” – Drowned in Sound
“A brilliant melange of catchy vocal lines and droning, grunge fuzz” - The Line of Best Fit
“Exceptional and odd, bringing evocative hints of Elysian 60’s pop like the Zombies to some serenely medicated Spiritualized passages” - Artrocker
“Simultaneously warm, sinister and steeped in musicological exploration, a chilly reflection of the sunnier exploits of fellow Oxford artists” - Music in Oxford
Oxford space-pop/shoegaze quintet Flights of Helios combine spiralling, caustic electronica with reverb-drenched post-rock guitar drones and heart-stopping vocals.
Flights of Helios have played Artrocker New Blood, Wilderness and Truck festivals, and have been invited by BBCIntroducing to play Glastonbury2014. Recent single FACTORY has been played on 6Music (Steve Lamaqc), XFM (John Kennedy) and Amazing Radio (Simon Raymonde).
