NEWS:  Flat Party release new single ‘Hindsight’, confirm debut EP and 2023 tour dates

London based indie band Flat Party release their new single ‘Hindsight‘, the latest from their self-titled debut EP which is set for release on 19th January 2024 via Submarine Cat Records. It was recorded and produced by Andy Savours (My Bloody Valentine, Black Country New Road, Sorry) at Battery Studios in North West London.  ‘Hindsight’ is a politically charged track about hateful immigration policies and terrible leadership. Vocalist Jack Lawther expands further:
“Our generation is often seen as this group of people who moan for no reason, but it really does feel like we’ve got absolutely no power to try and shift things for the better.”

“The lyrics for this came just after the first lockdown, which inspired the anger behind the end passage. There’s a lot to unpack with the rest of the song, but its ultimately about frustration, especially at the attitudes that are commonly directed to our generation about the state of the world and how “ungrateful” we are.”

On the creation of the song, guitarist Rory O’Rourke added:
“Musically, it was a song that seemingly materialised out of nowhere. Once the chords were recorded, the rest just flowed effortlessly – which doesn’t happen too often. I shared it with Jack, who then helped craft the big grandiose ending.”

Led by Lawther and O’Rourke, the pair met whilst studying in Bath, before moving to London in 2021 where the long-held vision for Flat Party sprang to life. Moving between jagged art-rock and crooning sixties-tinged pop, Flat Party – who have now evolved into a six-piece, completed by Nic Morris (bass) Dylan Tarayan-Bibbs (guitar), Zander Hearn (drums), and Tom Hunt (keys) – are adamant they do not want to be pigeonholed. With collective influences ranging from Big Star and Suede to Sparks, Japanese Breakfast and David Bowie, Flat Party’s music and overriding ethos is rooted in escapism.
