“Spinning in circles my thoughts on rotate like a carousel”
Hip hop duo, Flagstaff, have recently released their EP, ''Thanks For Coming'', a fresh and vibey adventure which, for a genre I don’t normally listen to, has had me consistently spinning and hitting repeat since it hit my inbox. The Flagstaff boys have bought something new and exciting to the music scene, it’s experimental and full of surprises.
With catchy, summer vibe feels, 'Headband' compels me jump in my car, wind the windows down and cruise with this blasting out the speakers. The first single release, 'January', is laid back and filled with rhyming structures that easily got caught in my head. 'Alarms' (my favourite pick off the EP) and 'Breakfast' are full of groove, and if you’re a fan that dabbles in the nu-metal stylings of Ocean Grove's "Rhapsody Tapes" then these songs should tickle your fancy! I think the boys themselves have summed up what they are about in the first line of 'imprez_me' - “Fuck you mother fucker I’m here to cause a scene”
There’s something for everyone on this EP and I can guarantee that you will not be able to listen to it without getting your body moving under its own accord!!
Put Flagstaff on your radar because this will not be the last we see of this talented duo.
