“Wake In Fright” by Desert Planes

“Wake In Fright” by Desert Planes is Northern Transmissions' 'Song of the Day,'

London two-piece Desert Planes, are Singer Tom Farrer and drummer Ben Niblett, old friends who in their adolescence, often collaborated and gigged in local pubs willing to over look their age. Following this formative step into their personal musical development and performing in other professional bands individually, it would only be a few years later that the two pick up where they left off.

Desert Planes’ unique chemistry, in terms of songwriting prowess and their live performances were instantly realised when they launched a self-produced demo version of “Wake In Fright” into the online world in mid-2015, followed by  live shows in London. The band have since re-recorded Wake In Fright, having recently worked out of the renowned Parr Street Studios with producer Richard Turvey (Blossoms, The Coral, Clean Cut Kid), and have spent the last few months honing their live craft with shows around the UK, including supports with the likes of Spector and Kyko. Wake In Fright is out now on Killing Moon.
