Flamingods’ latest track and video contains a message about xenophobia in modern politics

In the new clip the band have shared for 'Mixed Blessings'

Earlier this year we reported the news that Flamingods are to put out a new EP via Moshi Moshi at the end of May. ‘Kewali’ is out on the 26th.

The Brixton via Bahrain collective have just shared another new track from it, ‘Mixed Blessings’, along with a new animated video made by Alpaca Animations.

The visuals are, according to its creators, a “creative protest against the xenophobia which abounds in international politics right now, the video centres around an intrepid explorer on a quest for enlightenment.”

Flamingods are playing a whole bunch of festivals during the summer, but they’ve also announced they’ll play a headline show at London’s Jazz Cafe on 3 October.
