UPCOMING ALBUM OUTTACONTROLLER
SET FOR RELEASE OCTOBER 23
Toronto, ON – October 2, 2020 – Following last month’s release of their brand new single, Morning Light, Montreal rock ‘n’ roll duo, The Flamingos Pink – Sacha Gubany (guitar/vocals) and Julien Corrado (drums/percussion) return with new track, Life’s Automatic. An anthem of self-reliance and dependability, Life’s Automatic is the second release from the band’s upcoming sophomore album Outtacontroller (out October 23 via Label Étiquette). Listen to the song here and watch the official music video here.
“Life’s Automatic, is about taking matters into your own hands. Dwelling on the past won’t get you very far,” the duo shares. “Life’s automatic, it won’t wait for anybody. You step out the door and you take control. Your actions, your words, you choose them. Complacency is the death of purpose. It’s heavy and real. If you don’t fight for yourself who will?”
Gubany and Corrado shot the video with long-time friend, Renaud Lefebvre-Ganne, who documented the making of this record since the very beginning. The video depicts Corrado and Gubany walking into the future, no instruments in sight – telling you how it is and calling their shots.
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.
