Earlier this year, the young DC punk trio Flasher released a really great self-titled album, one that drew on more spaced-out genres like dream-pop and shoegaze, as well as the classic push-pull post-hardcore of the band’s hometown. The album started out its life as a Bandcamp exclusive, but now it’s getting a proper release on Priests’ label Sister Polygon. (Flasher singer/guitarist Taylor Mulitz is also a member of that band.) And director Drew Hagelin has also made a cool, stylized video for the album track “Destroy,” in which the band members play in desolate, abandoned urban settings and watch themselves on TV screens. Check it out below, via NPR.
Flasher gets its proper release 11/18 on Sister Polygon.
