Hidden Rooms

Just ahead of their UK tour and performance at Ronnie Scotts, NextGenJazz and CMJ present an exciting and innovative band, Flying Machines, fusing visceral rock-out guitar improv with anthemic melodies and lusciously textured soundscapes.

FLYING MACHINES play emotive and dramatic music, drawing upon influences as diverse as jazz, pop, progressive rock and metal to create an utterly unique and modern sound.

Formed by guitarist Alex Munk in 2014, FLYING MACHINES features some of the most innovative young musicians to emerge in recent years from the UK jazz scene, Matt Robinson on piano/keyboards, Conor Chaplin on electric bass and Dave Hamblett on drums. Centred on Alex's unique compositional approach, FLYING MACHINES fuse visceral, rock-out guitar improv with anthemic melodies and lusciously textured soundscapes. It's a sound shot through with the here and now of London's cutting-edge music scene, a decadent mash up of free-wheeling improvisations, prog rock energy and ambient meditations that never detracts from the emotive lyricism at the music's core.
