Meet 3 Of Your New Favourite (Brisbane) Bands - The Flamingo Jones, Amaringo & Gooby Jim

Meet 3 Of Your New Favourite (Brisbane) Bands - The Flamingo Jones, Amaringo & Gooby Jim

All playing at The Triffid this Friday, with some help from The Belligerents.

This Friday 12 January we've linked up with the good folks at The Triffid in Brisbane, along with The Belligerents (check out their latest video clip for Yes Man HERE) to host a little soiree set to the sounds of three exciting young bands doing good things in the sunshine state. YOUR NEW FAV BAND is a semi-regular night we're doing with The Triffid to showcase some great local talent, linking up with another Brissy band to book some of their fave artists from there. This weekend we asked Brissie legends The Belligerents who are some hot tips for bright young things in the Brisvegas area, and along with us we came up with Amaringo, The Flamingo Jones and Gooby Jim.

You can head to the event for more details HERE, and get to know the bands a little better beforehand below:

AMARINGO

triffid amaringo

Tell us about about yourselves?

Amaringo is a two-piece from Brisbane consisting of drums (Allie Wu Lin) and guitar (Christian Driscoll) mostly, but not exclusively. Amaringo formed in 2015 with Allie and Nathan Kearney, with a focus around Allie’s drum beats and vocal melodies. In 2017, Christian joined replacing Nathan on guitar.

What kinda tunes we talkin’?

Dreamy vocal melodies with slightly dark psych undertones.

Production/writing process:

Because there are only two of us it is quite a smooth writing process. Allie focuses on the lyrical content and vocal melodies while Christian provides beautiful guitar parts to accompany. It can also work the other way around; we both write pieces of songs that we then bring together to form a whole. It is all about getting into a rehearsal space and jamming a bit until we reach a sound we are happy with.

Any recent releases we should know about?

We are in the process of recording/writing in order to release an album this year.

What’s the rest of the year have in store?

Last year Amaringo went through a line-up change which sort of allowed for a renewal of the sound and writing style. This year we will focus on the release of an LP, mainly spending our time writing and recording the finishing touches.

Where can we hear more of your music?

THE FLAMINGO JONES

Tell us about about yourselves?

We are a band of Orangebooms from The Orange Planet, searching for magic. The band is always changing. We swap who we are a lot.

What kinda tunes we talkin’?

Groovy music we make for robots.

Production/writing process:

Mort records all the songs and sometimes shows the others. Sometimes they like them and then we all try to play them. Then we record them again, and we all try to play them again, like recycling.

Any recent releases we should know about?

The Tony Dancer Single/EP was released in November, and a live album from earlier in the year.

What’s the rest of the year have in store?

We have a few records recorded that we’re waiting to release. There’s an album/movie, an EP and a single that will start to come out early this year.

Where can we hear more of your music?

All of our releases and some early demos from Mort are all on the SOUNDCLOUD. You can look out for little movies from The Orange Planet on the YOUTUBE in the near future. Also FACEBOOK. Our records will be there too.

GOOBY JIM

Any recent releases we should know about?

Higher Power is the first song off a six-track EP due soon.
