ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Set to create an impact all of its own, we now have the soundtrack for the moment when Newton was struck by that infamous falling apple - it’s Flipron’s fantastic third album, the Rat Scabies produced ‘Gravity Calling’.

The album gives you blues, glam-tinged rock’n’roll, 60’s psychedelia and a whole lot more, all subtly woven around Flipron’s unique brand of pop from another planet.

‘Gravity Calling’ is produced by legendary Damned drummer Rat Scabies, and mixed by David M Allen, producer of some of The Cure’s biggest hits. It was mixed on a one-off vintage 70’s desk, originally hand made for producer Conny Plank, the audio wizard behind many classic Krautrock albums.

The album’s 12 punchy tracks are cleverly written odes to human failings large and small, the search to understand them and to live with their unavoidable presence. These lyrics are notable not only for the sheer range and scale of their imagery, being intimate and epic by turns, but also for the wry humour that pervades throughout.

Sonically, the band have taken a new angle with this album. ‘Gravity Calling’ is a more focused, confident record. As frontman/songwriter Jesse Budd says: “It’s like a hot rod version of the Flipron sound. A sort of go-faster, spangly paint-job version with big fat tyres. Pimp my Flipron, basically…”

Gravity Calling
Gravity Calling is the first album I bought and heard from Flipron, but it has led me to all of their brilliant music. This album is a unique mixture of not songs but stories, very inventive, original stories. When I listen to the creative rhymes and toe tapping rhythm I can't help but want to dance along. With lyrics like "We sit, once apparently conjoined, but no longer, The surgery of separation finds me the stronger & you too weak to offer even scorn" how can you not be pulled in and want to know more. These songs are unlike anything I have ever heard before, there is not one song on the entire album that I don't like. Their name sums it up, no other words can describe the band or their songs. Flipron's Gravity Calling is one of my best finds in a long time.
