The new single from quartet Flycatcher is exclusively premiering on ICM as the band prepares to release their debut album ‘Other Things’.

The band were founded in New Brunswick, New Jersey, in 2016 by Greg Pease (guitar and vox), Connor Carmelengo (drums) and Yianno Tsamutalis (Bass) who attended the same High School before meeting fellow band member Stephen Verdi (guitar) at Rutgers University.

‘Miles’ is the first crop of sings that the band worked on and it’s certainly a strong start from the quartet. Kicking off with roaring guitar riffs and crashing drums, this upbeat indie-rock track is a great start.

The album was recorded at The Headroom in Philadelphia that included some late night sessions with Mark Watter who helped add some unique tones throughout the record.

Greg Pease spoke to us about ‘Miles’ saying: “I had the guitar part written long before Flycatcher had formed, and I took it to my dear friend Kevin Donald (of “Let Me Ask My Mother”) who worked out the main melody of the chorus with me.

“Once that took shape it was just a matter of arranging it with the band and it came together almost instantly.

“I also have to give credit to my good friend Eric Zimmerman who wrote the main guitar lead for the choruses.

“As far as making the record goes it was an awesome experience – we had the pleasure of working with Kyle Pulley of The Headroom in Philadelphia.”

‘Other Things’ is set to release on August 4th. Flycatcher are set to play a show at Montclair this Sunday (29th). Find more details on their Facebook page here.
