Indie Duo Flaunt Show Off Smooth New Single “Something Different”
Flaunt is a rising indie-electronic duo with a bright future. The twosome’s ability to create an eclectic yet harmonic soundtrack of songs has led them on an adventurous path. The duo’s promise is on full display with their latest single “Something Different.” Flaunt concoct a delightfully vibrant energy with their globally inspired sound and diverse production style. With their upcoming album The Antics of More Youthful Times, set to drop on Christmas day, now is the best time to get familiar with this aspiring dynamic duo. The lead single possesses a refreshing tropical meets Eastern vibe and embodies the group’s new direction.
Flaunt is the brainchild of USA’s Justin Jennings and Joseph Vitterito. Hailing from two similar, but distant, areas of the United States (Colorado and Maine) the duo formed as a result of social media and have been recording ever since. They share responsibilities in the act with the main goal of making music that is art. The guys aim to create song cycles in the day and age where the album has declared “dead.”
In 2014, the duo claimed their first critically acclaimed success with the release of their Condon album. Following that early victory, Flaunt kept up their momentum and they released a synth/electronic based EP containing the independent music number one hit “National Anthem.” The eclectic selection of songs and videos included a curious cover of Donna Summer’s “Grand Illusion” as well as the rock epic and accompanying short film “My Clone Sleeps Alone,” originally performed by Pat Benatar.
With this experience and passion under their belts, Flaunt sought to recapture the disparate sounds that they harnessed in their debut album Condon. Equipped with a revitalized vigor, the twosome got back into the studio and harkened back to their roots, but embellished their trademark style with lyrics and more song structure. Justin and Joseph entitled the project “Rave Noir.” By blending both electronics and organics into an 18-track mammoth complete with narrative videos for each song, the group captured a new sonic identity. The results are an amalgamation of guitars, keyboards, swamp rock, and emotive vocals. When asked about the album they state, “we wanted to make an album that was reminiscent to some extent of what radio used to sound like… where a Zeppelin tune would be followed by a hit single by the Little River Band and then something by the Gap Band.”
Flaunt’s deep brooding aura comes clearly through in their pinpoint musicianship. The duo’s upcoming album The Antics of More Youthful Times will be a fascinating Christmas day surprise. Hear Flaunt’s tunes on Soundcloud.
