Flamingo is the Mint Records debut from Kellarissa, also known as Larissa Loyva. You may already know Larissa from her stunning vocal and songwriting contributions to previous Mint releases from P:ano and The Choir Practice. After working with these groups, defined by their strengths as ensembles, she's now taking centre stage with her new solo project.
"Kellarissa" literally means "in the basement". Think shag rugs, red lampshades, cocktail hour and muumuus. Flamingo is a multifaceted choose-your-own adventure novel of a pop record filled with synthesizer and vocal loops smothered in a haze of reverb in which Kellarissa asks eternal questions disguised as pop songs. Her previous work earned Kellarissa a license in pop sorcery and Flamingo is a magical one woman show that you don't want to miss.
