Upon moving to London they became friends with Karthik and so Flamingods were formed. As early gigs go, Flamingods’ couldn’t have gone much better. Having all bought tickets to the Animal Collective-curated ATP festival, they decided to take along a selection of their huge instrument collection and embarked on an eight hour set in a chalet on-site – with up to 60 people crammed in to try and grab a view of their constantly changing line-up and enchanting tribal rhythms, and those who couldn’t squeeze in danced outside or tried clambering through windows. Throughout 2011 and 2012, Flamingods built up a loyal following through uploading bedroom-recorded releases to their Bandcamp and continuing to wow through a series of live performances, including an ATP-organised support slot for Islet. At the end of 2011 they released a tape through the London based art and music label Belly Kids/ 2012 saw the band entering the studio for the first time and their debut album ‘Sun’ is the result of these sessions – recorded as a full band in London’s SoundSavers over the past 12 months. Their debut album 'Sun' is released on 21st of January 2013 though Art is Hard Records Official Website: www.flamingods.bandcamp.com Soundcloud: http://soundcloud.com/k_mal_36 Read more on Last.fm.
