Brighten The Corners Presents psychedelic rock four-piece Flamingods on Friday 23rd February 2024 St Stephen's Church.
“Sounds like a party in the desert where everyone’s invited” Loud And Quiet
International psych explorers Flamingods are a four-piece, multi-instrumental band from Bahrain & London founded in 2010. The group explores and experiments with an array of influences from western psychedelia, jazz and indie to a wide-eyed obsession with music from the East. Using a vast selection of instruments from the Middle East and Asia, the band marries this with western instrumentations of synthesisers, guitars and drums to create a potent sound all of its own that they call ‘Exotic Psychedelia’.
After convening for the first time at ATP festival in 2010 the band released a couple of EPs, before releasing debut album ‘Sun’ in 2013. This was followed in 2014 by ‘Hyperborea’, and ‘Majesty’ in 2016. In 2017 Flamingods signed to Moshi Moshi Records and released the ‘Kewali’ EP (2017), and their most recent album ‘Levitation’ (2019). ‘Levitation’ was influenced by the band's exposure to funk, Turkish psych rock and other eclectic Middle Eastern and South Asian sounds of the 1970s.
