Flasher is a three-piece out of Washington, D.C., and today sees the release of their post-signing-to-Domino Records single ‘Skim Milk‘, a song that is essentially about “being haunted by your own desire for belonging,” explain Taylor, Daniel and Emma.

“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.”

“This kind of future tense, aspirational bullshit means being held hostage by a future that’s already abandoned you,” the band concludes.

Since the release of their debut self-titled seven-track EP in 2016, the Washington-natives have been working on new music, Skim Milk is a good mix of shoegaze to punk, rock and alternative vibes and is the first taste of what’s to come from Flasher in 2018.
