Coming from a family of musicians, The Flammia brothers are bringing some incredible sounds to the indie music wire right now. Nick Flammia, Flamm‘s little brother, and guitarist Will Dufault, are a cool duo out of New York and are hard at work tracing flames down the East Coast with their surreal synths and vibrating instrumentals from their work with Eleven11.
I stumbled upon these guys during the week before seeing them live at this past weekend’s Love Day Ups & Downs album release party. Strictly per chance (and also from being involuntarily quarantined in my apartment due to this week’s most vicious polar vortex storm to date), I found myself on Eleven11’s page via Flamm’s recommended artists queue, when “The Wire” crept neatly into my studio headphones and began to lift me into the ceiling of a room filled with thick clouds. Echoing string synths and tonic vocals, this track burns with a certain passion and melancholy we enjoy in the timeless sounds of soul singers and performing artists like Frank Ocean when he released his supreme Nostalgia, Ultra tape in 2011 and saved RnB forever. Nick’s floaty cadence solidifies the worlds of soul, blues, and psychedelic mood music in an electro spell of future sounds with strong leads and radiant melodies.
I don’t want to give away too much and ruin the listening experience of the public, so go ahead and take a listen below, formulate an organic opinion, and remember to support the local music.
