About Flight Facilities
Australian electronic music duo Flight Facilities pepper their dance music with elements of folk, blues, and even classical.

• The duo’s 2012 debut single, “Crave You,” featuring vocals from cowriter Giselle Rosselli, earned heavy airplay on Australia’s Triple J radio. It’s also racked up tens of millions of streams.
• A “Crave You” remix by the Montreal duo Adventure Club also became a massive streaming hit.
• Their 2012 single “Clair De Lune,” which reinterprets a century-old Claude Debussy movement, went Top 40 in Australia.
• The duo’s 2014 debut full-length, Down to Earth, reached No. 3 on the Australian charts and was nominated for Album of the Year at the ARIA Music Awards.
• In late 2015, Flight Facilities performed selections from Down to Earth with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and released the concert as a live album. The LP—Live with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra—won Best Classical Album at the ARIA Music Awards.
