London via Bahrain based Flamingods aptly describe themselves as psychedelic ethnic mofos. Combining upbeat tribal influences and psychedelic Animal Collective-esque arrangements, their single 'Quesso' is a perfect entry into the band's uniquely conceived world.
The band's debut album 'Sun' will be released through Art Is Hard Records on 21st January 2013.
