Flight Club are releasing debut album "Until The Sun Downs" this week and to celebrate we asked them to tell us about the latest single "High Roller". Here is the story:
When we went into the studio we probably had over 30 demos or ideas we had previously started toying with.

A majority of our previously released work focused on high gain guitars and high energy drums. The vocals were punchy and in your face. "High Roller" was our attempt to slow things down, mellow out a bit, and play something an audience could dance with. (read more)
