Four-piece outfit from South London, Flying Ibex started as the house band for a commune of artists. Recently signed to Best Laid Plans and they have now released ‘No Matter’. The new single that encompasses the sea of influences the band went through in their process of combining tropical rhythms and elements of experimentation.
‘No Matter’ brings to our ears a new journey through psych-indie pop soundscapes. “I wrote the song using this old Hammond organ with a built-in drum machine. – vocalist Barnaby Keen says about the song – I finished it in about 15 mins and then left it to one side. Later, we returned to it to re-recorded some parts and as we were listening to some Cumbia at the time, this probably filtered into our heads and we added this kind of wonky drum pattern”.
