Having already established himself with a flurry of fresh and uplifting offerings these last few years, emerging producer Flight To Moonlight makes a bold return with his vibrant new effort 'Stary Tiles'.
Teaming up with vocalist Alesca Kara for the release, 'Stary Tiles' showcases the same bright and upbeat direction he has been focusing on recently. Jam-packed with shimmering hooks and stellar vocals throughout, this new jam will keep your hips shaking from start to finish.
So with the new single available now, we sat down with him to find out more about his origins and what has influenced his sound over the years.
What was the first instrument you fell in love with?
The drums , after watching Hanson play Mmmbob on Top of the Pops.
What kind of music did you love when you were younger?
I went through a few phases starting with pop/punk and grunge as an early teenager. When I started secondary school this was quickly side-lined and I got really into drum & bass, garage and the nascent grime scene that was emerging but I was also really into all the indie bands that were about in the mid-late noughties and was and still am a massive Libertines head.
What was the first album you remember owning?
Michael Jackson - Dangerous.
What is the one song you wished you could have written yourself?
There are many! Bloc Party – So Here We Here is probably the song that has had the longest shelf life with me and has been a big source of catharsis over the years so I’m going to go with that.
Do you have any habits or rituals you go through when trying to write new music?
None whatsoever, I just cast out my rod and hope for the best.
Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?
I’m obsessed with Fred Again at the moment, his album Actual Life is brilliant on some many levels and I can't get that tune he recently dropped with Baxter Dury out of my ear buds. I also really loved SG Lewis’s album as I’m always a sucker for disco inspired house or pop. The video for Caribou’s You Can Do It, with the dogs has also been making me happy this week.
If you could open a show for anyone in the world, who would it be?
Bob Dylan, it wouldn’t be appropriate but why not shoot for the stars.
What do you find is the most rewarding part about being a musician?
That moment in the studio when you stumble across an idea that you are really into and you get electrocuted with excitement and joy.
And what is the most frustrating part?
Pouring your heart and soul into a track knowing that unless you chuck a lot of money at it, it will likely be drowned in the vast digital ocean and not get much of a life in people's ears.
And what is the best piece of advice you have received as a musician?
Don’t try to make music before 12pm.
