Biography

“Sounding like a particularly west coast version of scottish popsters belle and sebastian and camera obscura, the flying tourbillon orchestra takes those band’s breathy pop and adds a little weight to it. maintaining the scots’ prediliction for orchestral touches (listen to the pizzicato-plucked strings on the aptly titled “strings” which also features a lovely joe meek-ish organ accent) and adding the occasional cinematic touch (the dramatic marching tempo and the haunting female hooting that pops up occasionally on “in a dream”) , the band is confident enough in its pop songwriting to never allow any of these exotic elements to pressure the music toward novelty. like the best modern pop groups, the flying tourbillon orchestra manages to recall many elements of the past fifty years of development without sounding like a direct copy of anyone else.”
