About this Event

The Human Fly is a 5-piece indie-rock group based in New York and Philly, with members from each city. What began as an intimate, experimental folk project by Robert Mathis (he/him) slowly evolved into a full-fledged ensemble with 2017's 'Gruesome', a five-year effort plagued by false starts. The record is littered with sonic echoes of Sparklehorse and Pinback amidst a backdrop of lush instrumentation. As Mathis ruminates on his years spent in Virginia, caustic banjos collide with floaty synths, a wistful piano line in 'Trash' gives way to a brief burst of violins. Yet the backbone of the record remains, as it did when The Human Fly was first conceived, the simple yet inexplicably nostalgic presence of an acoustic guitar. The group is currently at work on a follow-up to Gruesome.
