Children of Alice: Debut album released 24th February 2017 on Warp Records

January 26th, 2017

Full Biography

www.childrenofalice.com

TORONTO, ON – January 26, 2017 - Children of Alice have been quietly producing amorphous and intoxicating soundscapes as part of the Folklore Tapes collective for a number of years now, beginning in 2013 with Harbinger of Spring on the shared Ornithology release. This poetic conjuration of rebirth and new growth was the first unfurling of post-Broadcast creation from James Cargill, one half of the personal and artistic relationship at the heart of that epochal and increasingly feted band. The name Children of Alice was chosen as an act of tribute to the late Trish Keenan, for whom Alice in Wonderland and in particular Jonathan Miller’s summerhazy 60s idyll of an adaptation, was a presiding inspiration. The name invokes her abiding spirit and also creates a sense of continuity with the evolving Broadcast soundworld, which became more concentrated and individual as it refined itself and adapted to new configurations. The group (or perhaps we should call them a collaborative triad, since they occupy island territory far removed from the familiar shores of rock, though still keeping it in vision on the far horizon) consists of Cargill along with his former bandmate Roj Stevens (who played keyboards in Broadcast) and Julian House, co-founder of Ghost Box records, whose distinctive graphic design work also gives the label its signature look, and hidden prestidigitator behind The Focus Group.

This LP brings together their entire output to date, on their first widely available release

FLAGSHIP SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR “MEXICAN JACKPOT” DIRECTED BY MICHAEL POLISH (THE ASTRONAUT FARMER)

January 25th, 2017

TO RELEASE SECOND ALBUM
THE ELECTRIC MAN
MARCH 10 THROUGH
BRIGHT ANTENNA RECORDS

Electric Man Album Cover

Toronto, ON – January 25, 2017 – Flagship is excited to share their colorful video for upbeat indie rock track “Mexican Jackpot.”  The video, directed by Michael Polish (The Astronaut Farmer, Stay Cool) is a technicolor representation of the upbeat song.  Check out the amazing video here!

The band will be releasing their second album The Electric Man on Bright Antenna Records on March 10. The new album was produced by Joey Waronker, known for his work as the drummer for Beck, REM, Brandon Flowers, Atoms for Peace, Walt Mink, and many others. Full track listing below.

Flagship is singer/guitarist Drake Margolnick and drummer Michael Finster. It’s the Charlotte, NC duo’s honesty and rawness in their songwriting that drew Waronker to the band. He says, “They’re powerful and classic, fearless and unpretentious. I love when music affects me on a visceral level, when music draws me in and brings out an emotion, or an array of emotions, which is very difficult to describe.”

According to Drake, the song  “Mexican Jackpot” “is about two people – the verses are about my imaginary dream girl that I’d like to hang out with, and the chorus is about someone I’m really pissed off at. I like the contrast between the verse and the chorus.” The song was written with frequent band collaborator Leo Solis.

Flagship released their debut EP, blackbush, on Bright Antenna in 2012 followed by a self-titled full-length in 2013, which was produced by Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Washed Out). “Life Underwater” from Flagship reached No. 17 on Sirius XM AltNation and the Love Thy Brother remix of the song hit No. 10 on Hype Machine Remix and No. 30 on Hype Machine. “Life Underwater” has also garnered nearly 2 million plays on Spotify and 200,000+ views on YouTube.

1. Mexican Jackpot
2. Midnight
3. The Ladder
4. Burn It Up
5. 100 Lives
6. In The Rain
