Flash Trading debuts moody single "Similar Devils," plans EP release for year's end

Brooklyn’s Flash Trading is back with a tastefully concocted sonic haze of ambient pop that has a touch of grey to it: the easy-listening vibe of the group's latest single “Similar Devils” seemingly fits for both overcast mornings or foggy evenings, the music evokes a serene mood. “This track was inspired by the lazy monotony of seasonal affective disorder. The feeling of waking up in a drafty room for months on end, your curtains separating you and the world, wanting nothing more than to fall back asleep,” is what the band had to say about the composition. Despite having some elements of house music near the end of the track, “Similar Devils” cruises most of the song, letting its deep bass groove, atmospheric electric guitar phrases, and elegant synthesizer strains carry the listener to the comfortable corners of their mind. Flash Trading once again stimulates the brain, the way a good sophisti-pop band ought to do, letting the listener bask in their mood as they lounge. The band is preparing an EP for release later this year; in the meantime, we are premiering the new single for you below. - Rene Cobar
