"All hail Flamingods" iD/Vice
Flamingods return with ‘Majesty’, the band’s third album and debut release on Soundway Records. ‘Majesty’ is the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed 2014 sophomore album ‘Hyperborea’.
With this new album the five-piece have taken their sound in a new direction with a rich and multi-layered album brimming with diverse influences that reflect their multi-cultural backgrounds. The shimmering 10-track album crosses blissful psychedelia with a rich spectrum of the band’s sonic inspirations.
‘Majesty’ was written and arranged with a conceptual narrative, cohesive both musically and lyrically, following the story of protagonist Yuka on his journey of enlightenment. The record is split in two, morning/light/good and evening/dark/evil that unravels track-by-track as the record plays out.
The band will be touring ‘Majesty’ at dates throughout the summer. More information here: www.flamingods.com/tour-dates/
