Bad Flamingo – “Devil and the Deep Blue”

“Devil and the Deep Blue” is a suavely stylish track from Bad Flamingo, crafting a mysterious soundscape fit for desert-wandering. The suave bass crawl builds to the title-touting refrain, escalating thereafter into swampy guitar bursts with sporadically climatic energy. The “deep and dark waters,” sequence enthralls with its steadier, acoustic-laden pace — conjuring a contemplative spirit in the lead-up to a reprising finale. It’s easy to get lost in this success from Bad Flamingo.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of January 2023’ Spotify playlist.
