Warm Season: Twin Flamingo’s “Long Hair”

This has all the makings of a song that gets a lot of plays from us over the next few months. It’s a male-female duet from a new indie-pop outfit hailing from the Kansai region, the part of Japan that tends to do this skippy style better than the rest. But really, all those details end up secondary to just listening to the way “Long Hair” gallops ahead, the pair at the center of the song taking turns handing the verses and chorus, injecting both with an urgency that makes the pace al the more important. Listen above.
