Praised for their distinct blend of exotic psychedelia and tropical pop, Flamingods are the charmingly earthy London-based quartet experimenting with "new vibrations".

The colorful four-man outfit has already gained an enthusiastic following in the UK, and they are fresh off playing their biggest gig to date; week-long SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas.

"We felt a real affinity to the city and its 'Keep Austin Weird' ethos," vocalist Kamal Rasool reflects. Often spotted in thrift-store-esque garb, complete with embroidered fez (of course), Rasool is the group's irresistibly optimistic frontman.

"We met so many nice and strange people and really embraced the festival, seeing loads of amazing acts," he continues.

Recently signed to leading independent label Moshi Moshi Records, boasting Block Party and Florence and the Machine as alumni, Flamingods are set to release a four-track EP called Kewali on May 26th.

Commenting on the title-track release, Rasool explains, "Kewali is a song deep rooted in love...it's something we felt particularly passionate about given the uncertainty felt by so many around the world right now."
