New Zealand’s Fly My Pretties drops their new album titled ‘The Studio Recordings Part One’ today (October 25th, 2019). Let me start this off by saying that this album is the reason I review albums. I like to listen to new music and be astonished. And astonished I am. From the intro of ‘Singing in My Soul’ onward, I see the story that is Fly My Pretties. This is a family (not so much a band) that, as extended as it is, has that similar vision in that music is an expression of life. They want to create an immersive experience with their music, they say. They do. This is an album to listen to with the lights off (save for a few candles) and just close your eyes and feel the music. This is music to be felt, not heard. I would also say listen to as well. To hear means that you acknowledge. To feel or listen to is to absorb. You give your time hoping to get something back. And now, thanks to Fly My Pretties, I come away with aa yearning to listen again and a feeling that I was a part of something, not just a listener. That they were speaking to me. This is music on a deeply personal level and that is the type of music that must be shared and passed forward. A gift in the truest sense of the word. Enjoy!
About Fly My Pretties
Fly My Pretties evolved into an amorphous entity that claims over 50 members from acts like Lord Echo, The Phoenix Foundation, Trinity Roots, Hollie Smith, Terrible Sons, and many others. Their initial conception was made for the live setting – to provide a unique and immersive experience. Now, years later, they are finally putting their compositions on a proper studio album.
