Let Airplanes Circle Overhead is an experimental/post rock band from Carlisle in the North West of England. Their name is taken from W.H. Auden's Funeral Blues. After disbanding previous outfit As An Enemy, Luke Roberts and fellow member David Langfield
joined forces in 2003 with James Johnson to form Let Airplanes Circle Overhead. The bands sound is characterised by their ability to build up sparsely melancholic, languishing melodies, switching in an unforeseen instant to an assault of the distortion and jerking movements, building to prolonged white noise and onstage mania.
