NEONFLY Launch New Video 'Better Angels'

Tuesday, March 3, 2015
Brand new video for NEONFLY's ‘Better Angels’ single, shot on a Cyprus beach featuring Two Team GB Olympian gymnasts, unveiled.
‘‘Strangers In Paradise’ is so buoyed by steely self-belief and winningly infectious choruses, that you could imagine them beating the odds and taking slick songs like ‘Better Angels’ and ‘Heart Of The Sun’ to the huge venues they were clearly written for. KKKK” (Olly Thomas, Kerrang! December 12th 2014).
“It’s been three years since London’s Neonfly unleashed their fine debut ‘Outshine The Sun’ and the band have been no slouches in that time, racking up tours with the likes of Magnum and Dragonforce. The touring has raised their profile exponentially, to the point where their sophomore effort, ‘Strangers In Paradise’, is something I’ve been looking forward to, and it doesn’t disappoint. What I like about Neonfly is that they show a fair degree of dexterity on their songwriting, taking more from the worlds of hard rock and AOR than fantasy power metal Everytthing here is an improvement on their debut, from Willy Norton’s clear vocals to the songwriting itself, which is of the highest order. Opener ‘Whispered Dreams’ bristles with a hook you will never forget, while ‘Better Angels’ is a melodic hard rock attack that will win hearts the world over. 8/10” (Bruce Turnbull, Powerplay, December 2014)
“‘Better Angels’ is a sublime, immensely memorable slice of commercial power metal” (Classic Rock - Heavy Rotation - February 2015)
In the wake of rave reviews of their superlative new LP, ‘Strangers In Paradise’, hard driving melodic metal rockers Neonfly are releasing (album standout song) ‘Better Angels’, as a digital single, coupled with the exclusive b-side ‘Falling Star (Piano Version)’, [featuring the tinkling ivories of guest keyboard player Günter Werno from Vanden Plas], on Inner Wound Records on March 2nd, via all digital platforms.
Neonfly have today unveiled the video for ‘Better Angels’, shot on location in December 2014 on the beautiful coastline of South Western Cyprus, against the dramatic backdrop of the wreck of merchant vessel Edro III. Alongside the band, the video features the outstanding gymnastic talents of 2012’s Team GB Olympians Lynne Hutchison and Jade Faulkner, who were part of the Rhythmic Gymnast Team. The video showcases the stunning athleticism, grace, vivacity and poise of these awesome athletes, all subtly woven into the seascape narrative. Check it out at
Neonfly, who comprise Willy Norton on vocals, Frederick Thunder on guitars, Andy Midgley on guitars, Paul Miller on bass and Boris Le Gal on drums, have already carved out a formidable live reputation following a slew of eyebrow-raising high profile support slots with the likes of Alice Cooper, Magnum, H.E.A.T, and Dragonforce. A band very much ‘on the up’, Neonfly are now poised to win over a whole host of new fans with the release of ‘Better Angels’, a “sublime, immensely memorable”, immediately hummable, stunning single.
