“FLIES is a self-proclaimed “avant-garde, electronic, emo, and metal themed recording project” from Wakefield, Massachusetts. Their music is experimental and unconventional, to say the least. FLIES’s music combines a myriad of obscure sounds and noises to create a final product that engages and challenges the listener. I had the opportunity to conduct an interview and delve into the strange world of FLIES: What is FLIES? FLIES is the moniker for our recording project: avant-garde, EDM, IDM, emo, and soundscape music. The traditional genre of a track does not so much matter as long as it is resemblant of our underlying vision. FLIES also incorporates a lot of collaboration with other solo artists. How did you decide to name the project FLIES? FLIES named themselves. As individuals, we are vulnerable and ephemeral. As The Swarm we are almighty and powerful. As FLIES we embody both of these forces, as well as a prolific biblical plague. What inspired you to make music? ”
