Sunshine Coast alternative roots act Flaskas’ sound is a re-imagining they call 'Earth rock' – an organic, high-power blend of alternative world, coastal roots, funk, folk, blues and Indigenous music.
With a resume that includes support gigs with Ash Grunwald, Boy & Bear, Busby Marou, Tijuana Cartel and many more as well as performances at Sea N Sound Festival and Caloundra Music Festival, Flaskas are building a solid local reputation.
Their newest release is 'Afterglow' that features on Flaskas' forthcoming debut album 'Kingdom Come', which is scheduled for release in August and scenestr is proud to premiere today the 'Afterglow' video.
"Creating the 'Afterglow' movie was an exhilarating experience as we navigated through many emotions individually and as a band," lead singer Chris Flaskas says.
"The creative influence behind the activities in the movie was inspired by the choice we make; our free will and the opportunity we have each and every day to pave the life we wish to live.
"'Afterglow' is an ascending progression, a story of triumph over adversity. The whole band was pushed to our limits facing personal fears throughout the making of the movie and coming out on the other side with a sense of self-empowerment and accomplishment.
"I think we all grew closer as a band throughout the shooting process; it was a load of fun. The actions shown within rock climbing, skydiving, abseiling, sand boarding, surfing and rock jumping signified that we can make a change in our personal world and the world around us through our choices, our free will."
Flaskas play Peregian Originals (Sunshine Coast) 10 June and Miami Marketta (Gold Coast) 14 September. The band launch 'Kingdom Come' at Solbar (Sunshine Coast) 11 August.
