Flat Land announces debut album “Arrow to the Sun” and set summer tour dates.

This summer, ethereal funk fusion quintet Flat Land will tour the east coast in celebration of their highly anticipated debut album, Arrow to the Sun. Flat Land will be playing at Ashley Street Station with Sean Patrick on Friday July 15th (Doors 9pm, $5). The tour will include appearances at two musical festivals; Purple Hatter’s Ball at Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL, and Jibberjazz Mad Summer Meltdown in Schuylkill Haven, PA.

Arrow to the Sun showcases the band’s eclectic sound and tight compositions, quirkily self­described as “cosmifunkpop.”

 Flat Land’s out­of­the­box sound is reminiscent of artists like Beck, Led Zeppelin, Alabama Shakes, and Hiatus Kaiyote. Led by frontwoman Fae Nageon de Lestang (a descendant of pirates with buried treasure somewhere off the east coast of Africa) on vocals and electric violin, their live performances have been catching national attention at top tier festivals, such as Okeechobee Music Festival and Suwannee Hulaween.

 “Arrow to the Sun is our first album, and we really wanted to make the best product possible. Cutting the record was an adventure, and we really hope to bring a piece of that experience to new faces this summer on the tour”, said Fae Nageon de Lestang, frontwoman/violinist.

 Outside of the studio, the band spends their time working to promote music education within their community. Flat Land founded Future Music Makers this past spring along with electronic duo Bells & Robes and marketing firm Phairground. The organization works to create opportunities for youth to foster creativity and a passion for music in north central Florida.
