The Flints have shared their dazzling new single ‘Serengeti’.
The group revolves around a set of identical twins, born in Belgium but raised in Manchester. In lust with classic pop, The Flints fuse this with dreamy soundscapes, sitting somewhere between Tame Impala and The Kinks, The Weeknd, and The Bee Gees.
Recently supporting the Rolling Stones at BST Hyde Park, The Flints swoop back into view with glistening new single ‘Serengeti’. A glimpse of their incoming EP ‘100 Million Lightyears’ – it’s out on November 4th – the song yearns for escapism amid the flux of late capitalism.
“It’s tried and tested if you look at the likes of the Beegees, Beach Boys and The Kinks, vocal harmonies are super important,” say the band of their sound. “We wanted to take the nostalgia from that and bend it into something that sounds new and modern. Having spent so much time writing for other people, we’d forgotten how to make music for fun, and you could hear that in the music that was coming out. This is us taking back control of our own creativity.”
Discussing the lyrics of ‘Serengeti’, the pair add: “We read somewhere that all human-made mass exceeds all living mass on Earth… It made us fantasise about running away from the rat-race, breaking free from the monotony and repetition of modern life… After all, doesn’t everyone ‘wanna feel alive’?”
Tune in now.
