You may recognize the name Larissa Loyva from her previous outings with quirky popster Nick Krgovich as part of P:ano as well as a member of the dropout dream team The Choir Practice. Here we present to you, Flamingo, the solo debut from Loyva under the Kellarissa moniker.
Filled with synthesizer and vocal loops smothered in a haze of reverb where Kellarissa asks eternal questions disguised as pop songs, it is a multifaceted choose-your-own adventure novel of a pop record. Bearing a moniker that literally means "in the basement"—think shag rugs, red lampshades, cocktail hour, and muumuus—her work prior to Flamingo earned Kellarissa a license in pop sorcery, and makes this a magical one woman show that you don't want to miss.
The sounds flicker like a flame in a dark room and her hushed tones make the song feel like that most intimate of conversations - a secret meant just for you. - HeroHill
...a cocktail of otherworldly pop - Slant Magazine
...an assured, challenging, and yet entertaining work. - AllMusic
