photogojira "Are you receiving me? I don't where you are. But I know we'll meet again at the brightest burning star..." (hope I got that about right?) 'Transmission' is a fantastic song full of ethereal vocals and a questing story line that is charged with the unstoppable power of love. This is a fantastic album and story from note one to the very end. You'll love it. Favorite track: Transmission.

FiTZ Space synth at its finest: from slow, atmospheric ambient tracks that feel like the first spacewalk, through faster tunes that build up to reach light speed, and culminating in something completely otherworldly. Two vocal tracks shine the brightest, with the distorted, ethereal voice singing cosmic love songs of sorts -- an optimistic one in the titular track and a melancholic one in Transmission. A truly magical experience all the way. See the band in concert if you can! Keytar = much yes! Favorite track: Fly By Light.

Coventry-based synth pioneers Vieon return for 2016 with Fly By Light, the highly anticipated follow up to their critically acclaimed 2014 album The Sound of the Future.

Effortlessly combining the sound and aesthetic of the analogue past and dystopian future with their unique blend of evolving and powerful electronica, Fly By Light offers the listener a glimpse into Vieon's immersive and captivating universe.

A concept album in every sense, Fly By Light tells a story of love, adventure, loss and joyful reunion via a rich palette of catchy synth hooks, powerful bass grooves, emotive lyrics and epic solos. From the captivating ambience of Days of Fear and Wonder right through to the triumphant crescendo of Rise, this is an EP that has been lovingly and painstakingly crafted; encompassing influences from 1970s synthpop icons such as Jarre and Kraftwerk filtered through the cinematic soundscapes of 1980s electronic film scores.

Outside of the studio, 2015 has been a great year for Vieon with successful live performances across the UK from Manchester to Plymouth via London, firmly cementing their place as one of the most hotly tipped electronic acts in the UK.

Fly By Light is available from all good digital outlets and in a strictly limited cassette edition.
