Pink Flames are set to release their debut single on Raft Records, The Vinyl Factory sub label set up in collaboration with The Horrors’ / Cat’s Eyes’ Faris Badwan and his brother and Loom frontman Tarik, on July 22, 2016.
I’m Just A Star On A Democratic Flag and Pain, recorded with The Horrors’ guitarist Joshua Third and The History Of Apple Pie’s Jerome Watson, is a double A-side release on limited edition seven inch vinyl and will also be available to download via all the main outlets.
Described recently as Broadcast meets Brian Jonestown Massacre, I’m Just A Star On A Democratic Flag was originally released in the late sixties by L.A. cult band Smiles and is accompanied by a striking new video by founding member of The Jesus and Mary Chain and award winning music video / film director Douglas Hart.
The Pink Flames line up of Isabel Spurgeon (vocals / keyboard) and Max Oscarnold (guitar), who also feature in JC Flowers and Toy respectively, recorded the two tracks earlier this year backed by a band that included The Horrors’ Coffin Joe (drums), Toy bassist Maxim Baron and Edgar Smith from JC Flowers (double bass).
Busy schedules permitting, the London duo are hoping to announce some live dates to coincide with the single release in the very near future.
