Flasher shares new single + video "I'm Better"

Today, Flasher - the duo of guitarist Taylor Mulitz and drummer Emma Baker - release a new single/video, “I’m Better,” off their forthcoming album, Love Is Yours, out June 17th via Domino. Freedom is a major thread throughout the album. While lead single “Sideways” evokes the liminal stillness-in-motion feeling of a long-distance drive, and “Love Is Yours” is about the roller-coaster highs and lows of a long-term relationship, “I’m Better” is more explicit and playful. It revels in guilt-free trash-talk, “bye-bitch!” energies, and the bliss of feeling a toxic relationship recede into the rear-view. The video is made of Super 8 footage of the band.  


The band elaborates: “‘I’m Better’ is about leaving a toxic relationship and finding joy, freedom, and self-assurance on the other side. We filmed the video in central Oregon during a brief escape from pandemic isolation in 2021. The footage captures the expansive feeling that comes with exploring a new place or path forward.” 

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.
