If a group of flamingos is called a "flamboyance," then that might explain why there are only two featured on the cover of Rustie’s latest album Green Language.
In an interview with Pitchfork, he reflected on his debut album Glass Swords, stating that he felt he “went kind of quite crazy...taking the piss with kitsch sounds and over-the-top silliness.” Rustie, whose real name is Russell Whyte, explained that he wanted Green Language to evolve from that by being a “more serious” composition of songs. And with that in mind, the album’s cover is so elegant, you can almost imagine the rest of this sentence being read in the voice of David Attenborough.
