‘Running From The Lawman’ is the new single from Bad Flamingo. Usually this is where I’d dabble in context but the band have shifted the status quo a have a bio that simply says “The one on the left” and “the one on the right” alongside an Oscar Wilde quote. Badass.
With walking basslines, smoky acoustic guitars and a drum beat that seems to blow sand into the atmosphere, this new single is an ideal soundtrack for an adventure in the desert. Listening to this track makes me feel like Clint Eastwood in the Spaghetti Western trilogy, and I’m very okay with that. The vocals slink their way into the airwaves and meander through the atmosphere to turn this mysterious little number into something with serious intrigue. It’s great.
