Currently midway through their Aotearoa tour, local dancefloor legends Flamingo Pier served up fresh tunes and summer vibes for Rolling Stone AU/NZ with their ‘In My Room’ session.
Known for their hugely popular homegrown Waiheke Festival, the group recently released their new EP, Beneath the Neon, on Brooklyn dance label Razor-N-Tape (Midnight Magic, Tigerbalm, Kiwi Frank Booker), along with a disco-infused music video for the catchy title track.
The EP packs in three party-starting tracks, enhanced by remixes from Chicago house icon Glenn Underground and Razor-N-Tape co-founder JKriv, with a special guest appearance by Afro-boogie icon Steve Monite.
For their ‘In My Room’ session, Flamingo Pier played songs from their aforementioned EP, including the title track, “How 2 Feel”, and “Remedy”.
Although they weren’t really in their room at all: the group’s session was recorded during a stop in Mexico at a dreamy retreat while they were on their global tour, which also saw them share their dancefloor-ready sound with audiences in places as far-flung as Bali, London, and Berlin.
Flamingo Pier’s New Zealand tour ends with a multi-room show at Hollywood Avondale in Auckland on Friday, October 27th, featuring special guests like Frank Booker and LOU’ ANA. Their final performance will then be at Theatre Royal in New Plymouth on Saturday, October 28th.
Previously, Flamingo Pier have released music on the UK’s Soundway Records, including their self-titled debut album in 2021, which featured memorable guest appearances from Julien Dyne, Nathan Haines, and Jess Penson (Kédu Carlö).
