Text in englischer Sprache verfügbarAustralia's Flight Facilities is an electronic music production duo featuring the talents of Hugo Gruzman and James Lyell. They brokethrough with their 2010 single "Crave You" before hitting number three on the ARIA Albums chart with their 2014 full-length Down to Earth. They have continued to release tracks like 2017's Arty Boy with Emma Louise, 2018's "Need You" with Nika, and 2021's "Lights Up" with Channel Tres. Formed in Sydney in 2009, Flight Facilities first gained notice for such singles as "Crave You," featuring Giselle Rosselli, in 2010, and the J-Award-winning "Foreign Language," featuring Jess Higgs, in 2011. In 2013, they garnered even more attention with appearances at SXSW in Austin and Australia's Falls Festival. In 2014, Flight Facilities performed at Coachella in Palm Springs and released their debut full-length album, Down to Earth, which reached number three on the ARIA Albums chart and eventually went gold. In December of 2015, the duo released Live with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, documenting their ambitious symphonic concert from earlier that year. Flight Facilities returned in 2017 with the singles "Arty Boy," featuring Emma Louise, and "Stranded," a collaboration with Broods, Reggie Watts, and Saro. Two more non-album singles arrived in 2018 with the Nika collaboration, "Need You," and "All Your Love," which featured Dustin Tebbutt. They also cracked the top 100 in Australia with 2019's "Better Than Ever" featuring Aloe Blacc, before pairing with Channel Tres for 2021's "Lights Up."

The debut full-length album from Australian dance music production duo Flight Facilities, 2014's Down to Earth showcases the group’s sexy and atmospheric soft focus electronica. Showcasing the talents of members Hugo Gruzman and James Lyell, Down to Earth comes four years after their break-out single -- the yearning, '70s-influenced, electro-twee ballad "Crave You" featuring vocalist Giselle Rosselli -- caught the public's attention. "Crave You" is included here (along with a brief a cappella version of the song sung by Kylie Minogue) and serves as a good indication of what to expect from the duo's other material here. This is sultry, artfully curated, electronic pop that flows with deft ease through such stylistic touchstones as buoyant '70s soul ("Sunshine" featuring Reggie Watts), '90s ambient house ("Apollo" featuring Katie Noonan), and layered, early-2000s electronic-folk ("Clair de Lune" featuring Christine Hoberg). There is even a subtle concept-album quality to Down to Earth, replete with a spoken word intro and various samples (including a portion of Rod Serling's infamous 1959 CBS Mike Wallace interview) all designed to help guide you through your aural flight experience. With Down to Earth, Flight Facilities ultimately ground their music with thoughtful, emotionally resonant lyrics, distinctive vocals, and layered, sophisticated production, and by doing so, manage to rise above all expectations. © Matt Collar /TiVo
