About this item
‘Love Is Yours’, the new album from Flasher, out on Domino, steps up the ambition and reaches for the horizon.
The new 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. It retains the attitude that was fundamental to the band’s DIY roots, but cuts loose a touch of the angst.
Though the songs process disillusionment and loss, the music evokes warmth and optimism. It is their best record and also their most generous.
Now a duo, guitarist Mulitz and drummer Emma Baker had to reimagine Flasher’s voice. ‘Love Is Yours’ was recorded in Washington, D.C. with long-time friend Owen Wuerker. Rather than binding the duo to its past - to geography, old habits, or trusted sounds - the familiar environment proved liberating. Working out of Wuerker’s well-appointed homestudio allowed inspiration to arrive off deadline. With no shows in sight, Flasher could relax on presenting as a ‘rock’ band.
