More information: Last Flight To Pluto were founded in mid 2010s as a female-fronted project by Alice Freya (vocals and guitars). All had known each other from playing in various other bands which crossed paths occasionally and also some mutual friendships prior to the formation. Their first album ‘See You At The End’ was self-released in 2015, followed by ‘A Drop In The Ocean’ in 2019.
Writers Freya and Darren Joseph are joined again by guitarists Jack Parry and Ryan Barnard, plus old friends Ed Rees and George Jones (Son Of Man) with a guest appearance from Rob Reed on the opening track - Stop Yourself From Turning Into Dust, a song about a futuristic witch, sent back in time to warn us of a grim future if we don’t change things now.
Alice Freya: “We’ve taken a different approach again, we stripped everything back and allowed more space for me to sing, which is something that I felt really needed to happen this time round. Musically there’s still a lot going on, but I think the songs are packing a bigger punch than anything we’ve done before, because we’ve made room for melodies and hooks whilst keeping hold of our progressive roots. After all, some of the biggest tracks in prog are easily sang along to, they make you feel a part of the song by telling a story through their lyrics, a simple line can sum up a point in your life whether it’s a good or bad time, it can really bring out your sentimentality to that period and that’s the way I want to connect with our audience.”
