Biography

Although undoubtedly, and proudly, a band that could only be native to Washington DC and its politically-engaged DIY independent culture, the songs of Flasher speak to an experience that is universal - an instantly recognisable state of being where torpor and hedonism share an equal status, one experienced at the sharp end of inter-generational equality. The band's music is a thrilling and energised response to such feelings of malaise - a layering of guitars and atmospheres, which proves that the sound of kicking the hell out is still the best response.

Latest Release

Flasher Love Is Yours

Album | 17th June 2022

The band’s 2018 debut, Constant Image, was a triumph – a set of songs both dizzy and explosive, balancing new-wave lushness and post-punk frenzy. Love is Yours steps up the ambition and reaches for the horizon. The record is ablaze with mood, melody, and carefully threaded hooks, finding the band foregrounding the pop sensibilities that had always been present in their previous releases.  The album was written and recorded amid a moment of flux for the band. Now a duo, guitarist Taylor Mulitz and drummer Emma Baker had to reimagine Flasher’s voice. When it was first completed, Mulitz was shy about sharing the album, worrying that old friends would find the new sounds unrecognizable.  Love is Yours  is unquestionably made up of Flasher’s DNA, but it’s true that something pivotal has shifted. If Constant Image found the band tightening up and transcending its basement-punk roots, Love is Yours marks another, major moment of ascent, this time toward something that’s easy to embrace, but harder to pin down – still thrilling, but newly illuminated and entirely their own.
