Flamingods

Weds 20 August

Grey Lantern are delighted to present Shape Records’ Flamingods as they tour in support of brilliant second record Hyperborea!

Flamingods is a five piece experimental band originally started by Kamal Rasool in late 2009 as a bedroom project, now comprising of Kamal, Charles Prest, Sam Rowe, Karthik Poduval and Craig Doporto.

Hyperborea was written after new Visa laws forced Kamal out of the UK. As such, the album deals with themes of identity, belonging and alienation whilst also day dreaming of leaving to foreign far away lands such as the mythical island of Hyperborea. The album was made with none of the band members in the same room, sending audio files back and forth across the internet.

Joining them at Kraak will be the multi-headed, multi-styled beast of The Yossarians!
