Flamingo, as a band, was born when Lavinia Siardi (guitar + vocals)
met with musician Giacomo Carlone (drums) during Lavinia’s first EP
tour in 2015. But the two actually started working together when
Lavinia went back to Milano after three years in Japan, and recorded
the album “Komorebi” (in Japanese “the sunshine filtering through the
leaves of trees”). Flamingo's music is characterized by suspended and
reverberated moments alternated with violent outbursts, with the
rhythmic section being the backbone of their songs. The album is an
attempt to achieve catharsis, both in terms of lyrics and sound, as a
consequence of the moments of break and growth experienced by the
members, and combined with therapeutic musical rituals. Komorebi is
going to be released in early 2020 by WWNBB.
Flamingo brings on stage a live show characterized by strong shoegaze
and post-rock influences.
