Australian three-piece Flamingo have only been making their lush brand of alternate electronica for just over a year - but you
would be forgiven for thinking otherwise. A three-piece, who discovered the importance of balance dabbling in a concoction of ill down-tempo drum patterns, infectious melody and off-kilter electronica. Taking influences from
various styles to make music that doesn't satisfy any one genre,
Flamingo spent the early months of 2014 refining their sound and building
a powerful live show supporting the likes of Bonobo, Yacht, Giraffage,
Classixx, Kilter and Rüfüs.
In April 2014 Triple J selected the trio to represent JJJ Unearthed on the main stage of Groovin The Moo Oakbank. Following this Red Bull Music Academy invited Flamingo to perform at Splendour In The Grass amongst an incredibly talented lineup including Nicolas Jaar and Hiatus Kaiyote. On top of their debut festival performances 2014 has also seen Flamingo embark on a ten date sold out tour around Australia with good friend The Kite String Tangle.
Praise garnered thick and fast on the back of sophomore EP 'DRIP AWAY' released through Etc Etc, coinciding with the band's first national headline tour which saw the trio visit Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide. FLAMINGO struck again in early 2016 with, "Hypnotised", and just as the name suggests, its mesmerizing from its first listen.Showcasing the bands laidback swagger and groovy attitude, "Hypnotised" is an undeniably sweet track, layered with bold vocals and electronic beats.
