Flight Facilities Essentials

Though they’ve released only one album—2014’s Down to Earth—Sydney duo Flight Facilities have staked out a dream run of singles since the dawn of the 2010s. The secret lies in how well Hugo Gruzman and James Lyell play with others: They’re consummate collaborators, shape-shifting to make the most of each distinctive mouthpiece for their cosmic electronic earworms. Soul guru Aloe Blacc leads a gospel-inspired emotional charge on 2019’s “Better Than Ever,” while Giselle brings an airy, relatable yearning to 2010’s debut single “Crave You.” In both cases, Flight Facilities subtly bolster their guests, proving nimble and adaptive without sacrificing their streamlined percolation and knowing funk/disco callbacks. They’re just as adept at sultry slow burns: See the seven-minute ballad “Clair De Lune,” centred on a hypnotic Christine Hoberg.
