Ngaiire - Around     Funk/Soul, RnB, Soul 28/05/2013
‘Dirty Hercules’ is about the lack of transparency we sometimes project onto people due to uncertainty, mistrust or even jealousy; that demon that says we have to compete.
‘Around’ delves into the relentless push and pull of relationships when one shoulders more than the other. It deconstructs love as an equally thankless operation and a reckless act of surrender to another’s cause questioning each others strengths, motives, and ability to find hope in the hopeless.

Flap!’s virtuosity and lyrical sophistication draw the ear of the intelligent listener, whilst exuberant energy and hard-driving rhythms compel audiences to dance. The band effortlessly combines musical integrity and entertainment.
“The complexity of the instrumentals, both on their own and combined with the vocal tracks, create a depth to the music that we have come to expect from larger jazz groups. Flap! has successfully presented [an] original take on this genre by adding [an] eccentric Australian flair...”
