Flasher – Constant Image
There’s weight and lightness here. It’s not often a debut album arrives in so complete a form but when it does you know you’ve got something special on your hands. After years of having to decide between nail-biting confusion and disarming pop melodies, Flasher finally allow us to have it all. Constant Image is an album of anxietyand escape, but also one of euphoria and freedom. No matter how high the stakes may be, the delight in which Flasher came together to write and record these songs is undeniable. The three of them share vocal duties, sometimes harmonizing in gorgeous counter-melodies that sweep you away, sometimes taking turns to sing in nervous fits of emotion.
