Flashes: Flashes

Flashes cover art
UK based indie rock band Flashes have released their self-titled sophomore album. The eleven tracks, take elements from grunge, noise rock and shoegaze, to deliver a darkish album full of reverby delights. The atmospheric instrumental work perfectly compliments the understated vocals.  For the most part, the overall production on the album, particularly guitars and vocals, is good . However, the production comes completely undone on the album with one of the worst drums sounds we've heard. Unfortunately the drums are important and it's a shame to have that production flaw make a mess of an otherwise fine release. Stream and download Flashes at the link below.
