Flying Machines on Myspace

Fender-wielding New York power-pop commandos Flying Machines effortlessly evoke music you already know and love even as they take it to a whole other place you haven’t visited before. Channeling artful influences such as Queen, the Police, Electric Light Orchestra, Elvis Costello, Billy Joel and even Weezer and the Strokes, members William Ryan George (vocals, keyboards), John Wlaysewski (guitar, vocals), Evan Joyce (bass) and Ken Weisbach (drums) are soaring toward their own musical identity.

Flying Machines bear the fortunate distinction of being the first band discovered by interweb giant Yahoo Music and signed to the music partnership between Yahoo and USA Network (read: NBC Universal Inc.), which explains why you started hearing Flying Machines music on top-rated USA series Psych in 2008. This venture is a new model of exposing emerging music to the world using the vehicle of music wrapped around original programming marketing and promotion. The Flying Machines guys clearly have pop smarts to spare, as evidenced in textbook pop gems such as “On a Whim,” “Video Games,” “Stay” and “Open Up,” all of which can be experienced in their full digital sonic glory on the band’s MySpace page. The band is scheduled to move from online phenom to major-label album-producing status in 2008.
