Ryan Stasik and Doom Flamingo Release Second EP, “Flamingo”

Doom Flamingo: FlamingoAfter dropping their debut EP, Doom, in May of 2020, Doom Flamingo has released a companion EP called Flamingo. The band, founded by Umphrey’s McGee bassist Ryan Stasik, calls it the alter ego to its predecessor.

The collection of songs lean towards the danceable pop of the 80s with Tina Turner and Whitney Houston serving as its main influences. Vocalist Kanika Moore also cites Michelle Obama, for whom they wrote “Michelle”.

“‘Michelle’ is a song dedicated to the women that exhibit love, intelligence, and charisma because it feels good to deposit positive energy and be fed with the same,” she writes. “I’m inspired by Michelle Obama. I was thinking of when former president Obama and his wife would party [attend live shows] and what power she must have emitted.”

Stasik and the crew will also be hitting the road to support both of the EPs, now that shows are happening again. Flamingo is available now digitally through iTunes, Amazon MP3, and other streaming services.
