London//Bahrain psych/funk/alt four-piece Flamingods have unleashed their new single “Tall Glass“, alongside an accompanying video.
Flamingods cruise into Afro-synth mode with the effortless swagger of Tall Glass. Inspired by 70s Afro-synth music and lyrical themes of self-preservation – the band reach for a funk-pop belter that packs a solid punch with an infectious groove.
Speaking about it, they said:
“We had a lot of fun with this one, layering funk guitars over wonky synths and an infectious rhythm section. It’s the kind of track we’ve always wanted to create but perhaps weren’t quite ready for in the past, embracing our pop side whilst also feeling very much like a Flamingods track.”
“We’re quite lucky as a band as we have a whole melting pot of cultural inspirations to pull from. As well as our collective eight nationalities we’ve also lived in London for the whole existence of the band which in itself is a culturally diverse and inspiring city. I think this comes through on Tall Glass, it has a concrete kind of swagger and it’s one of our favourite tunes from the record.”
Watch the video below, shot in London and directed by rising Indian, LA-based director Tanmay Chowdhary.
