The Night Flight Orchestra + One Desire
On 18 March Doornroosje will turn into a palace of sin for a single night: on that night, alcohol will hit you harder, the stakes are higher than ever and women will all go undercover as space cadets. The Night Flight Orchestra from Sweden was founded by Björn Strid, better known as the vocalist of Soilwork. Love for seventies and eighties hard rock is very easy to discern in their catchy songs. Influences from bands like Journey, Toto and Boston are present in their songs with spacey synths, pleasant background choirs and progressive riffs. It all sounds unmistakably retro, yet the catchy songs are rock solid and earworms of the most resilient kind. With members of bands like Arch Enemy and Soilwork there’s no doubt about the musicianship involved. The band has already been nominated for a Swedish Grammy Award in the category Best Rock/Metal Album for their record “Amber Galactic”.
