For the first time since 2014, the Respected duo of the indie-electronica scene Flight Facilities are back with the release of their new single “Arty boy.” The song features vocals from a previous collaborator Emma Louise. Emma was also featured on their last release, their debut album LP Down To Earth, in an ambient song “Two Bodies”. But that’s not all, this release comes complete with artwork from Danish designer Chrstiane Spangsberg as well as a sentimental music video.
The video was made by the German collective Jünglinge, the new visual tells the 80’s themed tale fully equipped with ravishing neon lights, body building, and pool parties.
Directed by Faraz Shariat, the video follows the story of Irani-German couple Shirin and Nazar, who own a vintage bathhouse and enjoy reminiscing about their friendship with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
In a recent interview with triple j, Flight Facilities opened up and revealed that they were in the midst of narrowing down their project from “around 60” new songs for an upcoming release. In the meantime, with no official news of a full-length release, “Arty Boy” is a good sign of new music on the way. Listen to the new track and watch the video below.
