International psych explorers Flamingods are back with brand new album ‘Levitation’ (3 May,
Moshi Moshi Records) and have announced a run of dates including their biggest headline
show to date at London’s Village Underground on 1 May.
The first single to be unveiled is ‘Marigold’, a multi-sensory psych-rock trip that finds
Flamingods on hair-raising form even by their own exuberant standards. ‘Marigold’ oozes fun
out of every pore, a perfect antidote to turbulent times.
‘Levitation’ is inspired largely by the disco, funk and psychedelic sounds coming out of the
Middle East and South Asia in the 70s, the album channels these influences through a vision
soaked in mysticism, positivity and sun-drenched imagery.

During the process of writing and recording ‘Levitation’, Flamingods found themselves living in
the same continent for the first time in four years and it’s this new unified feel that defines the
confident and eclectic sound of the album.
‘Levitation’ is the follow-up to Flamingods’ breakthrough 2016 album ‘Majesty’ and follows the
‘Kewali’ EP for Moshi Moshi and a one-off release with Dan Carey for his Speedy
Wunderground singles club in 2017. During this time, they’ve performed live sessions at
6Music (with Gilles Peterson & Lauren Laverne), KEXP, Boiler Room and travelled the globe
spreading their exotic psychedelia to the masses, getting people dancing from Austin to
Amsterdam.

Sleep Eaters

Sleep Eaters drop debut EP 'Holy Days' (PNKSLM Recordings). Taking inspiration from the past, country, surf, psych and blues, particularly with their use of traditional instrumentation such as the country western lap steel and galloping bass lines, although the energy and conviction of their live set is very much of a post-punk attitude. 

The band have been tearing apart the UK scene, playing with the likes of LA Witch, Crows, Sugar Candy Mountain, The Murder Capital and recent Colombia Records signees Mellah to name a few. Also seeing them play a sold out single launch show at a secret Hackney Wick warehouse, then selling out The Windmill. They've recently finished touring with Drahla for their album tour. Also playing Isle of Wight, Portsmouth Psych Fest, Another Fest & more. They will be playing an in-store at Rough Trade East to celebrate the release of the EP. Followed by their biggest headline show yet at Studio 9294 for Bad Vibes. 

Half the band is made up of brothers Sean and Glenn Wild, whose former band 'Puffer had released a limited edition 7" record with The Horrors label Raft Records. The brothers have been running Loose Bones Radio for the past 7 years on NTS. Bassist Danny Herman, played for several years in Whistlejacket, considered being one of Bad Vibrations favourite groups playing in London.
