Flasher tiptoe around touchy subjects on the infectious “Love Is Yours”

Washington DC duo Flasher are releasing their second album Love Is Yours this summer, and following on from lead single “Sideways” they have now shared the title track. They say:

“‘Love Is Yours’ is about the roller-coaster highs and lows of a long-term relationship—the kind where a conversation can feel like a tripwire, with subtextual clues that offer the promise of reward if correctly decoded.”

Just like “Sideways”, the new single finds Flasher fully leaning into their groovy, dance-ready stylings. It makes for a perfect vessel for this tale of tactical talking – navigating the push and pull of quotidian conversation with your long-term partner without upsetting anyone. Naturally, this leads to getting tied in mental knots and setting unsuspecting conversational traps, something the duo reflect magnificently in the head-spinningly catchy chorus; “it’s like a knock on the door / I never heard it before / you had me opening oh so naturally.” Domestic arguments can be strenuous, but Flasher also highlight the sweet side of verbal jousting with your beloved in this delightful new jam.
