The release of "Friends & Foes" on April 6th saw Isaac's Aircraft storm their way in to the Top 30 Indie Singles Chart on April 12th alongside acts like Oasis, Franz Ferdinand and Arctic Monkeys… Not bad for a band with a relatively small budget!
Needless to say, the band have come a long way since forming on the playground of their old sixth form college in Cambridge.
"Friends & Foes," as featured on BBC6 Music with Tom Robinson, recognises the bands progression from a three piece to a four piece, creating an all-together much rockier sound, welcomed by Kerrang Radio"s Alex Baker, who played the track in March.
With heavy piano influences ranging from Chopin to The Arcade Fire, Isaac's Aircraft combine a concoction of pounding rhythms and tortured lyrics, to create a truly refreshing and innovative new sound.
Setting UK venues alight from Oxford to Manchester, with stand out tracks including "Friends & Foes" and "Nothing To Relate," Isaac's Aircraft appeal to Indie-Rock and non Indie-Rock fans alike.
The band have just finished working on their next record with producer Paul Tipler (Placebo, Idlewild, Charlatans), which is scheduled for release in late 2009/early 2010, date to be confirmed.
