Flamingods – Hyperborea. Shape) UK release date: 21 July 2014. by Dylan Kilby published: 15 Jul 2014 in Albums. Hyperborea was written much in the way of The Postal Service’s Give Up; the five band members never recorded in the studio together, but instead e-mailed their parts and revisions of each track to each other. The result is a work deeply grounded in Middle Eastern music with elements of freak folk and psychedelia.
Hyperborea finds Flamingods identifying what makes them different to other acts. Sure, it can sometimes feel a little like stirring water with a foot just before jumping in, but this does appear to be something the band are, at least partially, aware of. There aren't a lot of grand statements on Hyperborea; it's much more like a consolidation of sounds. Hyperborea is an enthralling album, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have certain aspects which just don't excite as much as others. There are tracks here which have magic and charm, like 'Ancient Rhythms', and others that feel a bit too broad in scope to invest in fully.
