London’s Flamingods new single “Quesso” has a distinct tribal sound that just pulsates with all that natural energy that young men need to get out. Bringing in a slight pysch influence, the band seem to take where the other Tropical-inspired bands left off, by fully realizing the joyous nature of their sound and never once shying away from it. The Animal Collective comparisons will surely be there, but this is far more accessible than anything they have released, by far. Besides the immediate happiness I felt listening to this track, I can imagine it would be a hell of a lot of fun to hear live.
This is the 1st single off their debut record Sun (which we can’t wait to hear) due out January 21st on Art is Hard Records. This will be the first full length that the SW London label puts out. We think they picked a very good choice.
Taken from their debut album “Sun” due for release on January 21st, 2013 through Art Is Hard Records. Available as a limited /300 green 12" vinyl + poster combo or in a super limited /100 Flamin’ Goods Hot Sauce package with CD. Pre-order from http://artishardrecords.bandcamp.com now!
“Quesso” is the perfect illustration of Flamingods’ mantra - ‘alien yet accessible’. Tribal chants coincide with tropical pop melodies and all manner of cacophonous drums, topped off nicely with riffs added by legendary Ponytail guitarist Dustin Wong.
We’re truly thrilled to have this be the first album we put the Art Is Hard name to as we’ve found it to be the most fresh, exciting and interesting piece of music to hit our ears in quite some time!
