Ever since storming onto the scene with Hottest 100 hit Crave You in 2010, Flight Facilities have made a name for themselves as one of the best live Australian electronic acts out there. They are on the road in celebration of latest track All Your Love, and play at the Fremantle Arts Centre this Saturday with The Kite String Tangle in tow.
The brainchild of Big Scary/#1 Dads’ Tom Iansek and good friend Tom Snowdon (formerly of Lowlakes), No Mono is an experimental electronic project that’s getting as many rave reviews as their previous works (that is to say, many). The pair take to the stage at Jack Rabbit Slim’s on Saturday night with special guest Jeffe.
