Hear This // “Skim Milk” by Flasher

By March 14, 2018SONGS

Artist: Flasher
Album: Single Release
Track: “Skim Milk”

The future is a often a frightening or unnerving prospect, but Flasher explore why it’s actually something to be welcomed in their new single “Skim Milk”. The song is the third release after their recent singles “Burn Blue” and “Winnie” following their self-titled EP released in 2016. “Skim Milk” welcomes the idea of uncertainty head-on through minimalistic, but comprehensive stylings and swirling synths. Their buzzing, electric track propels you forward into the unknown and allows you to ponder what is possible.

Flasher released an official music video the new track on March 8th and collaborated with director Ezra Ewen. The video itself reflects the anticipation and excitement that is felt throughout the song. The band stated “The themes in ‘Skim Milk’ and its video might be described as being haunted by your own desire for belonging. 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. But most folks don’t have the privilege to live outside the present. This kind of future tense, aspirational bullshit means being held hostage by a future that’s already abandoned you. We’d rather escape to something new and unknown than hold out for a good life that hates us and expects us to make lemonade out of miserableness. Instead of holding out and hanging on, we’re here to tell you (and ourselves) – “go.””

Maybe venturing into the unknown isn’t as intimidating with an anthem like this by your side. Watch the official music video below and you can get “Skim Milk” now via Domino Records.
