Flamingods Invite You On a Colorful Psychedelic Road Trip

The UK psychedelic band, the Flamingods, have announced their latest album Levitation will be out via Moshi Moshi. The album announcement comes along with a video single for the track, “Marigold,” which follows the Flamingods taking a road trip to Nizwa, Oman.

Kamal Masool, the founding member of the band said about the video: “We had heard about this gang of motorbike riding youths through our friend Ali Al Sharji and knew immediately that we wanted to make a music video with them. They live in a remote city in Oman called Nizwa and have had these vintage bikes passed down from generation to generation. The police aren’t so fond of them but they are some of the nicest guys we’ve ever met.  We joined them riding through the city and had a proper road trip along the way with the Barbu. TV guys, exploring through deserts, mountains, skate parks, palm groves and old monuments. I think the motion of them riding the bikes melded with the motorik groove of the song perfectly and the sun-soaked environment was just what we needed to capture the song’s themes.”
