Franco-Japanese label Kitsuné convincingly held onto their reputation of genius-clairvoyant-electro-savants last year, bringing to our shores the neo-italo-disco stylings of mysterious Aussie outfit Flight Facilities. Their first single proper “Crave You” went on heavy rotation last summer in pop-inclined circles as well as on dancefloors, a glowing ode to infatuation featuring the tooth-achingly sweet vocals of songwriter Giselle. Having produced remixes for acts Sneaky Sound System, C90s and James Curd in 2010, Flight Facilities are in demand and due to seriously, erm, take off this year.
The last we heard, U-Go-B and Jimmy-2-Sox (their actual names) were working on a new single (release date frustratingly undisclosed. Maybe they’re busy posting freaky shiz on their blog), and are in talks with Shinichi Osawa about exciting future projects. But for now, please enjoy the official video for the song that made them a serious fixture on party playlists last year, joyously replete with Freudian imagery.
