|FLAGSHIP Self Titled Limited Gatefold Vinyl LP
Together, Flagship sift through the pastoral folk rock graces of bands like Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear, with occasional detours into wide-eyed pop catharsis. Coming off of a few high-profile shows earlier this year, namely South by Southwest and the inaugural Bottle Rock Festival in Napa Valley, the band has also garnered hometown praise by being voted Best Local Band for Charlotte Magazine’s 2013 Bob Awards. For their self-titled debut LP, via Bright Antenna Records, they brought in producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Youth Lagoon) to man the boards. Building upon the orchestral pop foundations initially laid on 2012’s Blackbush EP, the band tread deeper into the hazy borderlands between indie rock and classical influence.
