Flamingods are a four-piece, multi-instrumental band from Bahrain & London founded in 2010 by Kamal Rasool and now consisting of Rasool, Sam Rowe, Charles Prestand Karthik Poduval. The group explores and experiments with an array of influences from Western psychedelia, jazz and indie to a wide-eyed obsession with music from the East. Using a vast selection of instruments from the Middle East and Asia, the band marries this with Western instrumentations of synthesisers, guitars and drums to create a potent sound all of its own that they call ‘Exotic Psychedelia’. They have previously released music on an array of reputable indies including Moshi Moshi, Soundway, Art is Hard and Shape and are currently working on their fourth studio record.
