On this gorgeous Tuesday afternoon, D.C. post-punk trio Flasher has delivered a gift in the form of an excellent new single, “Burn Blue.” The B-side to the band’s forthcoming seven-inch record, “Burn Blue” is at once arresting and reflective, harnessed by cerebral guitar riffs that build gently as the song powers forward.
“‘Burn Blue” is about trauma and time,” Flasher vocalist/guitarist Taylor Mulitz told The FADER. “It’s about trying to stay present while melting with memory.”
Flasher’s new record, featuring “Burn Blue” and “Winnie,” will drop on Friday, May 5 via Sister Polygon Records. They’re currently on tour right now, but they’ll be back in D.C. this summer to play our June Luce Unplugged show at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. It’s free–make sure to save the date for June 22.
