Melbourne band, Flap! make music that sounds both old and new. Influenced by 1920’s prohibition-era dance bands, but with a hip modern groove. A good-times party band made up of kick-arse musicians. Jess Guille’s vocals are honey-sweet, while Eamon McNelis’ trumpet playing is a riot of colour and rhythm. High energy, charming, intoxicating, fun! Flap!’s songs deal with universal themes of love, death and drunkenness in ways that are often surprising, intelligent and always uplifting. If Flap! is playing you can be sure it’s going to be a great day for the race. Which race? The human race.
‘High-energy, melodic, highly dance-oriented, deconstructed and reconstructed jazz! I highly, highly recommend this. You will have blisters.’ Harry Angus, Cat Empire
‘Bound to get you on your feet! Think F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby multiplied by a funky New Orleans party with a hint of that Aussie charm we all know and love.’ The Dwarf
‘Infusing upbeat pop melodies with old school jazz and a sound that makes you want to get out of bed and just f**king dance.’ Vulture
