Doom Flamingo Releases Debut EP
After forming in 2018, bassist Ryan Stasik and Doom Flamingo have released their first album, simply entitled Doom. The synthwave rock band takes a darker turn on the album, although it still keeps things pretty upbeat.
“We set out to make something purely conceptual. We wanted to write outside of ourselves and into our favorite books, movies, guilty pleasures, and imaginations that lean toward the mysterious and macabre,” the band writes. “Horror is often looked at as a cheap-thrill genre, but isn’t it also an exploration into our innate fears as humans? Without Science Fiction, we might not have many of the devices we use every day. It is also fun, and we’re very much about that as well.”
Stasik, who also plays for Umphrey’s McGee, lays down some rumbling bass with enormous sounding synth sounds. Hear the whole album here:
