Sun, the much anticipated debut album from London-via-Bahrain five-piece Flamingods, arrives in a couple of weeks and we couldn’t be more excited about it, having heard some of their amazing recordings over the last year and a half. The album drops on January 21st via Art is Hard Records and it will be available on 12″, CD, and digitally.
Back in October, the self-proclaimed ‘ethno-poppers’ offered the lead single ‘Quesso’ featuring guest guitarist Dustin Wong. They are following it with another mind-blowing track called ‘Taishōgoto’, named after a Japanese musical instrument, also known as the Nagoya harp. “The melody itself we thought sounded quite Arabic and since we all grew up in the middle east, we thought it would be a good idea to explore that,” said the quintet. ‘Taishōgoto’ will get you dancing. Here it is.
