The EP will be available June 19th on iTunes for digital distribution. Listeners can still expect to hear influences from 60’s motown, 70’s punk & 90’s rock with that same salty FLAGGS touch. Tracks “Take a Ride” and “Young Love” touch on the 60’s music scene while “Cheap Life” tests the waters of early punk. “Demon in His Way” slaps back at songs portraying women as the devil, and reverses it with portraying the man as a shady sexter.
Flaggs has a sound that can best be compared to artists such as The Pixies, Weezer and Best Coast. Noted as “the best new artist nominee” by The San Diego Music Awards, and reminiscent of The Kinks, T Rex and Phil Spector groups by The San Diego CityBeat. Flaggs has become a sought after band and tours the West Coast circuit, venues and music festivals year-round. Flaggs regularly plays venues such as The Casbah, Soda Bar, The Redwood Bar (LA) and have played festivals such as Adams Ave St Fair and The Reader On Tap Festival. Founder-Singer-Songwriter-
