FLAMINGODS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM MOON; STREAM ‘KINICH AHAU’ (MY PANDA SHALL FLY REMIX) NOW

MOON RELEASED 6TH JULY ON LOVERS & LOLLYPOPS; UK & EU TOURDATES ANNOUNCED FOR SUMMER

Flamingods return with a new album Moon, set for release on 6th July via Lollypops & Lovers. Today, The Quietus have premiered the first cut from it, My Panda Shall Fly’s stunning remix of ‘Kinich Ahau.’

It’s in Flamingods’ nature to wish to re-invent themselves at every turn, and with this in mind Moon sees the ceremonial splendour and fevered abstraction of their debut album Sun reconfigured by a choice selection of remixers. “We love to make people dance,” say the band. “It’s part of the nature of our live shows and we also love collaborating. Getting someone to study and understand your music and interpret it in a different way is something that really interests us.”

Hailing from such far-flung reaches as Bahrain and Argentina as well as the deepest underground recesses of the UK, their remixers have created a collaborative tapestry that stays true to the spirit of Sun, yet send it into transcendent new dimensions. The likes of Ponytail leader Dustin Wong, My Panda Shall Fly, Shinamo Moki, Octachamp and Esmink take the sunny vistas and rhythmic rituals of the band – as redolent in themselves of Vision Creation Newsun-era Boredoms, the repetition of krautrock and the textures of prime Animal Collective – and decontextualised them in a myriad sonic locations; digidub, abstract house and delirious Eastern-influenced mantras all vie for attention in a panoply of delight that shows up the majority of conventional remix albums for the lazy affairs they often resemble.

LISTEN TO ‘KINICH AHAU’ (MY PANDA SHALL FLY REMIX) ON THE QUIETUS

Brandishing an infectious barrage of joyful sound comprised of equal parts hedonistic fury and wide-eyed abandon, Flamingods are blazing a trail through the farthest reaches of consciousness. Psychedelic in spirit yet utterly devoid of the clichés perpetuated by the genre of late their debut 2012 album ‘Sun’ was merely the first step on a journey that has led the globe-straddling ensemble from their disparate origins in Dubai and South-East London to festivals like Wales’ Green Man and Portugal’s Milhoes De Festa, with a questing spirit and total disregard for boundaries driving them every inch of the way.
