Flamingods - 'Head Of Pomegranate'

8/10

Over the past decade or so, Flamingods have been seen as one of the more adventurous and unpredictable names doing the rounds. With a sound that likes to blend psychedelic ambitions with an Afro and Middle Eastern-inspired edge, they have spent many of the last few years building a distinctive sound for themselves that is still completely unique to them. And after a few years to figure out their next move, they return with their eagerly-awaited fifth studio album 'Head Of Pomegranate', a record brimming with vibrant innovation.

While the Flamingods sound has always had this larger-than-life quality to it, it feels like they are aiming even bigger and wider for their newest outing. From the very beginning, 'Head Of Pomegranate' explores a multitude of genres, everything from funk, soul, blues, disco, pop and everything in between, creating this wonderfully wild yet still succinct listen. And although there is this certain level of unknown around every corner, the four-piece go to great strides to make each track as engaging as the last, resulting in some brilliantly inviting gems here.

This new collection may have come after a four-year break for the group, but 'Head Of Pomegranate' shows they are still very much on top of their creative game. With such a flamboyant approach to their production and songwriting, they remain one of the UK's most beloved outfits.
