about

Following their 2010 flurry of vinyl releases, the Neu Ideas CD neatly compiles Still Flyin's recent forays into krautrock and pulsating dance-pop. Neu Ideas displays a more refined studio veneer than their debut album Never Gonna Touch the Ground, but maintains the Still Flyin' "hammjamm" credo, guaranteeing fans a toothy grin and a shaky rump.

Having entered the world in 2004, the band soon became renowned for their rumbustious live show. With a line-up numbering well into double figures and a dubious-at-first infusion of 60s-era rocksteady, indiepop and heartfelt (read: endearingly goofy) party lyrics, Still Flyin' have managed to win over even the most skeptical of punters. They have since toured extensively and played festivals all over the world including SXSW, Laneway and the Pavement-curated ATP.

Working again with producer Haima Marriott (AiH), and drawing heavily on the dark synth melodies of Kraftwerk and the repetitive rhythms of the title's namesakes, on Neu Ideas Still Flyin' lead us through fields of blossoming aural flora, flush with all kinds of colourful sounds from the synthetic and acoustic worlds. Lead singer/lyricist Sean Rawls again finds himself between the eso- and exoteric, veering between the trippy internal monologue of radio-fave 'Bull Riff' and the heart-on-sleeve "life jams" of 'Strength' and 'Higher Than Five'.
