Title - Until The Sun Drowns [Vinyl]
Artist - Flight Club
For those unaware, Richmond, VA based rock band Flight Club cut their teeth hitting every club venue or living room they could book during their college days, before hitting the road for regional touring.
After a successful year of touring the eastern seaboard and Midwest, as well as the band’s first trip to Canada, Flight Club signed a deal with Richmond-based label Open Your Ears Records.
Together they released the late 2019 EP, Recreational Love, produced by Four Year Strong’s Alan Day.
Almost immediately after the release, Flight Club began gearing up to record their first full-length album, Until The Sun Drowns.
With time off from touring due to Covid, the band was able to pour all of their attention into writing music and pairing the songs with engaging music videos.
The result is a cathartic collection of songs spanning an array of vivid emotions fueled by the band’s desire to connect with the listener on a more honest level.
Until The Sun Drowns will be released on July 30th, 2021 via Open Your Ears Records (purchase link below).
1. Another Great Unknown

6. Two Tongues
7. Good Company
8. Like You Mean It
10. Come Back
This vivaciously, and all round excellent album that has high hopes of being the last bastion of the true rock and grunge era, opens on the melodious, mid-tempo Another Great Unknown and the upbeat vocalizations and beating heart of Adolescence and backs those up seamlessly with the angst-ridden, racing energy of I’ve Been Kicked Out Of Better Homes Than This, the unwaveringly earnest catchy instrumentation hooks within High Roller, the gentler, euphonic musicianship and vocals of Dust Bunny, and then comes the addictively stylistic guitar work of Two Tongues.
Next up is one of my own personal favorites, the free flowing indie/alt drive and passion of Good Company and the cultured freneticism of pop-rocker Like You Mean It which are in turn backed by the uncomplicated, lighthearted guitar fare of Visitors, the album rounding out on the the balladry ebb and flow of Come Back, closing on the richly embodied soundscapes of the profusely canorous Patterns.
“For us, Until The Sun Drowns was the opportunity to explore so many of the influences that we wanted to touch on as a band, without sacrificing songs or styles to fit the mold of what our genre should sound like,” shares guitarist Sam Tucker.
“We hope anyone who listens to this record can hear the freedom of creativity that we felt working on each song. There’s truly something for everyone on this album and we hope it can speak to you as a whole.”
On the lead single, he adds: “This song is just plain fun for us. From the instrumentation, to the title, it’s just a high energy track that was designed for our live show. We just can’t wait to play it for people.”
