Ought make indie rock that sounds like how urbanity makes you feel: nervous, antsy, sometimes hostile, yet intoxicatingly vibrant. After two critically acclaimed albums, 2014’s “More Than Any Other Day” and 2015’s “Sun Coming Down”, Montreal’s post-punk poster boys are slated to release their third album early in 2018.

Formed in 2015, Flasher is Taylor Mulitz (guitar, vocals), Daniel Saperstein (bass, vocals), and Emma Baker (drums, vocals). Long-time friends, they are also established members of Washington, D.C.’s re-emergent DIY music scene.However, while Flasher is a product of that crew, its music operates with different physics. Where their local peers favor direct and volatile gestures, Flasher’s music exists in the tension between conflicting feelings and sensibilities. They’re jagged, but woozy. Tender, but aggressive. When you’re singing through peavey speakers on sticks in a venue that’s more underwater ashtray than group house living room, it’s hard to project anything resembling sensuality. Flasher does, though.
