THE FLAMINGOS PINK BRING THE ROCK ‘N’ ROLL TO SPOOKY SEASON WITH NEW VIDEO FOR BLOODSTRAP
PREMIERING TODAY ON INDIE88
SOPHOMORE ALBUM OUTTACONTROLLER OUT NOW
Toronto, ON – October 30, 2020 – Just in time for Halloween, Montreal rock ‘n’ roll duo, The Flamingos Pink – Sacha Gubany (guitar/vocals) and Julien Corrado (drums/percussion) – unleash their haunting new video for Bloodstrap. Appearing on their freshly released sophomore album, Outtacontroller (out now via Label Étiquette), Bloodstrap acts as a musical mantra for keeping the fight going. Have a look at the video – which premiered today on Indie88 – here.
“You’re ready to fight! You have to keep a steady head, your swords are sharp. ‘You need to do better, you wrote it in a letter.’ One at a time, that’s the mantra. You can’t unwind until you’ve done the work. The work is never done. The fight is now,” exclaim Gubany and Corrado about the track.
“Visually, it’s is a cross between the Ramones and Thriller,” they continue about the video, which was created with long-time friend and teammate, Renaud Lefebvre-Ganne, who has been documenting the making of Outtacontroller since the very beginning. “We've been working with Renaud on all things visual for the band and we’re stoked for the future. Feels like it's starting to click. Hang in there Sea Turtles got more coming your way!”
The Flamingos Pink believe rock ‘n’ roll is a way of life; a state of mind that is foundational to the band’s DIY attitude and reckless self-abandon. As a duo, they fill space and time rhythmically with a sweet blend of tones. Authority tight power chords, bottom heavy beats and a soulful voice, this musical harmony is the result of Sacha and Jules having a deep connection to one another thanks to their parallel backgrounds and upbringings. Being able to relate to one another went beyond just having gone to the same schools and having the same jobs (at different times). They discovered that they have undeniable chemistry, both musically and in the broader sense of style-de-vie.
Outtacontroller was constructed during the quarantined Spring of 2020. Starting in April, Gubany and Corrado exchanged around 30 voice memos of song ideas and anything else musically that came to mind. Gubany played guitar every day for two months straight, exploring the sounds that would eventually come to be part of the 11 tracks on Outtacontroller. In May, the pair met up in an industrial warehouse and wrote the whole album. When June came around, they were ready to record the entire album and headed to the studio for two days to lay down all 11 tracks. Outtacontroller pushed Gubany and Corrado, and highlights just how much they are able to accomplish together.
