Since the band debuted roughly four years ago, Flamingods have released three studio albums, so they have been putting in work in the studio, and their latest album Majesty may be their most ambitious record yet. The band has taken their sound in a new direction with multi-layered production that is paired with blissful psych-rock, and it is cohesive both lyrically and musically. The album also keeps a loose narrative of a protagonist on his path to enlightenment. I anticipate seeing a lot from these guys in the future, and will look forward to their next release.
