The Flight

The flight are east London production duo Joe Henson and Alexis Smith who have written and produced for some of the top names in the music industry.  The Hangman E.P. is their first outing as artists in their own right.

The EP consists of 4 diverse tracks that make up a stunningly produced through dark debut. ‘Hangman’ the title track is a modern electro-beat driven re-telling of the folk song Pretty Polly.  This song is a murder ballad, telling of a young woman tempted away from home into a forest where she is killed and buried in a shallow grave.  This sets the theme to the rest of the E.P. which is written from the viewpoint of the murderer, from first meeting the young woman to rueful ghost after his execution.
