BattleFlagg’s debut EP “Blood Meridians and the Black Law” instantly pulled us into their intellectually-inspired sound. With instrumentals which will soak you in 90s Indie nostalgia and captivatingly sensitive vocals, the NYC-based artist’s sound is full of quintessential Rock n Roll charm.
The track which really caught our attention was “Glastonbury (Is Waiting)”. The track shares the same stadium-filling energy as the Stone Roses, the melodic guitar intricacies which you’d expect from Johnny Marr and there’s a slight hint of 70s American Punk Rock to ensure that BattleFlagg well and truly made the sound their own.
The production may be slightly Lo-Fi, but the artist’s ability to orchestrate unforgettable melodies is more than perceptible in Glastonbury (Is Waiting). It will allow you to remember a time when Glastonbury wasn’t the sell-out festival it is today.
You can check out Glastonbury (Is Waiting) along with the rest of BattleFlagg’s 2020 album for yourselves via SoundCloud.
