Flamingods have returned with a new single and video, ‘Dreams (On The Strip)’.

It is the first music for the London quartet since their album ‘Levitation’ in 2019.

Speaking about the track, frontman Kamal Rasool comments, “‘The power of dreams has got me hooked over the past few years. When I lost my Dad to Covid 3 years ago, I started having lucid dreams about him where he existed within these surrealist settings that felt both poetic and nonsensical. It felt like he was trying to reach me in these dreams, to give me advice or perhaps just be closer to me. It changed my perspective of dreams and the sometimes-potent effects they can have on you”

The accompanying visual was shot between London and LA. Kamal explains: “‘The video’s pomegranate imagery is a reference to the name of the Bahraini village my dad was born in (Ras Rumman / رأس الرمان) where Pomegranates were once cultivated. The motif is our way of paying tribute to him, alongside featuring some of his belongings like his boombox, binoculars, sunglasses and clothes.”

Alongside the new music comes headline UK live dates this year. The full details read:

4 – Where Else?, Margate
8 – The Portland Arms, Cambridge
9 – Scala, London
16 – The Hare & Hounds, Birmingham
17 – Yellow Arch Studio, Sheffield
18 – Brunel Goods Shed, Stroud
