Since they appeared with their self-titled, self-released EP back in 2016, Washington, DC trio Flasher has exuded both clarity of intent and radiant self-confidence. Critically applauded from the start, that initial release offered a clear blueprint. By turns razor sharp and woozy, skipping from shoegaze to punk and back again, it offered confirmation of a band whose wiry energy and melodic ease made them instantly arresting.

Today, Flasher announce their signing to Domino. They've also shared a new video and song, the exhilarating "Skim Milk." The band describes the song and video below:

"The themes in "Skim Milk" and its video might be described as being haunted by your own desire for belonging. We're not bemoaning "no future, no fate", we're advocating for it. From getting a mortgage, to going to college, to crafting public policy, folks are always telling you to think of your future, to make choices in the name of some future. But most folks don't have the privilege to live outside the present. This kind of future tense, aspirational bullshit means being held hostage by a future that's already abandoned you. We'd rather escape to something new and unknown than hold out for a good life that hates us and expects us to make lemonade out of miserableness. Instead of holding out and hanging on, we're here to tell you (and ourselves) - "go.""

Rock band from Chicago, IL

From the fog, pop prevails. Members Emily Kempf, Eric McGrady and Jason Balla formed Dehd in the Summer of 2 thousand 15. Kempf and Balla's vocals meet and depart over wiggling guitar licks and the lazy rhythms of McGrady's stand-up drum kit. Dizzy days and desert nights are the stuff dreams are made of, as are the musical recordings Dehd have assembled.

Sometimes in a “right place, right time” sort of way, what could be a misstep ends up a saving grace. Such is the case for Philadelphia’s new dark-pop quartet Corey Flood. While Ivy Gray-Klein (bass/vocals) never really meant to be a lead singer (though she’s already known for playing bass in Littler), a last-minute lineup change before the band’s first gig pushed her in front of the mic. And after that, things fell into place. With Noah Jacobson-Carroll and Em Boltz on guitar and Juliette Rando on drums, Corey Flood was set.

The self-proclaimed “despondent rockers” keep it short and sweet on Wish You Hadn’t, their debut EP from Brooklyn’s Fire Talk Records. The four songs simmer with a quiet fury, Gray-Klein’s hushed vocals floating above the metronomic drums and minimal, atmospheric guitar. Corey Flood takes influences like Helium and early Liz Phair and pushes them in a gloomier, more post-punk direction. “There’s a horse head / in my bed,” Gray-Klein almost whispers on the last track, “Causeway.” “It’s so hard / to be your friend.” It’s this kind of disappointment that permeates the EP—but it seems almost cathartic, as though the brutal honesty will lead to a light at the end of the tunnel.
