Charleston, South Carolina’s hottest band, Doom Flamingo, have announced their highly anticipated new EP, Flamingo. Led by lead singer Kanika Moore, the group is eager to get their latest collection of new music out into the world before they hit the road for a slew of tour dates this summer.
Fans of Doom Flamingo will be delighted to know that the new EP serves as a dance floor ready alter ego to their 2020 Doom EP—a dark synth-wave-inspired collection. The band began recording Flamingo before the pandemic, and tracks like “Untraditional” and “Hot Wheels” showcase the group’s evocative ability to transport listeners to another world entirely.
Though the group sounds like no one else, they take inspiration from a wide array of artists, which makes Flamingo a thrilling listen. The band points to Daft Punk, Whitney Houston, and Tina Turner as main touchstones, but one of the chief inspirations for the EP is Michelle Obama. The band even wrote “Michelle” in her honor.
“‘Michelle’ is a song dedicated to the women that exhibit love, intelligence, and charisma because it feels good to deposit positive energy and be fed with the same,” explains Moore. “I’m inspired by Michelle Obama.”
