Flight Club Talks Recording, Musical Influences and More!

Flight Club, a rock and roll band from Virginia, recently released their self-titled EP, Flight Club. Adore had the chance to talk to them about recording, musical influences and more.

Adore: What was the recording process for Flight Club like?

Flight Club: Awesome! We did most of the instrumental stuff in our friend/co-producer’s basement. It was laid back and we got to use a lot of nicer equipment than we were used to. We did the vocals at Summit Sound Recording Studio which is tucked away in the mountains near Eagle Rock, VA. It’s an amazing studio and the surrounding area was absolutely gorgeous. Although it was early January, so it was always freezing. Sam ended up catching a cold during vocal tracking which caused some difficulties, but he powered through! All in all, it was an incredible experience for us.

A: What’s your favorite track on the EP?

FC: I’d have to say the first song, “The T-Truffle Shuffle”. We explored a lot of different directions, musically, on this release, but I feel like that track really embodies the sound we want to accomplish as Flight Club. It’s got a catchy guitar riff, heavy breakdowns, groovy melodies and lyrics full of teenage angst. Anyone can relate to this jam because it’s swingy enough to dance to, heavy enough to mosh to and catchy enough to make you sing along!

A: Who are your main musical inspirations?

FC: Oh, there are ever so many. Four Year Strong is Sam’s personal favorite, but he listens to anything involving loud guitars and drums. They combine the positive vibes of pop punk with the heaviness of hardcore to get an incredible blend of power and melody. Charlie loves a lot of core pop punk like The Story So Far, State Champs and Neck Deep along with some heavier bands. Toney love FYS as well, but also has a taste for heavier artists like The Devil Wears Prada and Ice Nine Kills. He also listens to some prog rock/post-hardcore bands like Dance Gavin Dance, A Lot Like Birds and Closure In Moscow. Steven provides our bluesy, old-school, rock n roll vibe. His idol is Jack White (and the other bands Jack plays in) as well as other modern blues rock bands like The Black Keys, Cage The Elephant and Jet. He’s also big on a lot of jam bands like Widespread Panic.

A: Can we expect any new music from you soon?

FC: Wouldn’t you like to know 😉 We’ve been doing a lot of writing and are starting to really form a solid idea for our next release. We’re crazy stoked on the new songs we’ve been coming up with and can’t wait to show everyone how much we’ve grown as a band. When we’ll start recording is undetermined, but be on the lookout for a possible music video in the near future… Other than that, make sure to check out our EP because I promise you won’t hate it!
