Flying Points / Press

"For a band that claims to have an ordinary story, New York City-based Flying Points are anything but. Drummer Jonathan Julian and Guitarist Dave Bradley worked together at an ad agency when Julian asked Bradley to join his preexisting band. Their original sound, as described by Julian was “if you could somehow meld Pantera and Rage, with [John] Coltrane and bossa nova - that would have been us.” After taking it as far as they could, the duo stumbled across singer Barnes Benson. “He had the vocal tendencies of a young Rod Stewart. Dave and I initially had no idea how to play around it, but we knew it was what we were looking for,” Julian recalls. After what felt like an endless search for a bassist, the trio found Kellie McCormick and the band was at last complete. With influences ranging from Depeche Mode to Stevie Wonder, there’s a little bit of something in the band’s sound that a person can relate to. "

"Lyrics like ‘Show me some of eternity’ and the fun combination of male and female vocals on ‘New Day’ makes this is another highly noteworthy track. Things that this band does well is crank out deep bass lines, combined with smart lyrics and killer vocals, no matter what ‘genre’ the track falls under."
