Flamingods have released a new single.
‘Tall Glass’ is the latest cut from their just-announced new album, ‘Head of Pomegranate’. The full-length will arrive on 13th October, and has already been preceded by recent singles ‘Dreams (On The Strip)’ and ‘Gutterball’.
Charles Prest says of the track: “Musically we were inspired by my Afro roots here, musicians from the 70s and 80s like William Onyeabor, Steve Monite and Letta Mbulu – who were putting out Afro-synth bangers and fusing electronica with funk, disco and pop. 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’s one of our favourite tunes from the record.”
