Flamingo Pier ‘Indigo EP’

Brothers in arms Luke, Brad and Dominic are back with a new discoid ICBM in the form of the Indigo EP on the ever-reliable Soundway Records, just in time for the tail end of the southern hemisphere’s summer and the leg-baring optimism of the European spring.

Their upliftingly cosmic, afro house sensibilities are once again front and centre, all artfully lacquered with an astute pop sensibility. To their credit they pull off the rarely realised trick of being highly produced and vocal forward while never feeling saccharin or too overtly commercial, and despite this only being a four track EP (with a radio edit of Indigo) they have created the impression that there is something for even the most devout disco deviant. For the DJs there is the deep percussive push of Jungle Groove, while Indigo and Tripping Up will happily Spotify the drive to many a local surf spot and late night beach party this summer.

I’ve been lucky enough to DJ with Luke Walker a couple of times now, and having heard him out I can detect his love of Italo, post punk and Afro eclecticism gently permeate through every production on this record. While I don’t know the other fellas involved, I get the feeling that they are very much on the same page. Out on February 7th it will be available for your aural pleasuring from all your usual streaming services and vinyl emporiums… Get involved pilgrims.
