Flasher share upcoming shoegazey single.

FLASHER SHARE NEW SONG, “BURN BLUE,” OFF UPCOMING 7″

“WINNIE” B/W “BURN BLUE” OUT 5/5 ON SISTER POLYGON

The Washington D.C. trio Flasher have quietly begun to build a powerful name for themselves. After a successful trip to Austin for SXSW, garner praise from all who saw the band’s tightly coiled and acerbic performances, they are sharing “Burn Blue,” the B-side to their recent single, “Winnie.” The 7″ will be released on May 5th via Sister Polygon.

Flasher is Taylor Mulitz (guitar, vocals), Daniel Saperstein (bass, vocals), and Emma Baker (drums, vocals). Long-time friends, they are also established members of Washington, D.C.’s re-emergent DIY music scene, with Mulitz being a member of Priests, Saperstein of Bless, and Baker of Big Hush. Flasher continues to explore new territory with every new song they share. “Burn Blue is about trauma and time,” says Multiz. “It’s about trying to stay present while melting with memory.” Listen and see their upcoming tour dates below.

PRAISE FOR “WINNIE” & S/T EP

“Flasher offer seven impressively-honed songs that speak to selfhood and sublimation.” – Pitchfork on s/t EP

“A subtle critique of American consumerism and media hysteria that’s never heavy-handed. It kind of just sounds like what it feels like to stare at a screen with a billion tabs open at a time. Oh! And it’s also just a really good punk song.” – Stereogum on “Winnie”, 5 Best Songs of the Week  

“The source material may not be chaotic, but the song certainly is — such is Flasher’s transformative beauty.” – CLRVYNT on “Winnie”

“A cutting social satire with riffs à la J Mascis, “Winnie” is equal parts intellectual and endearing.” – BULLETT on “Winnie”

I've been a music fan since my parents gave me a record player for Christmas when I was still in grade school. The first record I remember owning was "Sesame Street Disco." I've been a professional writer since 2004, but writing long before that. My first published work was in a middle school literary magazine and was a story about a zoo in which the animals could talk.
