Plain A.I.R. (December 2021): Flash Back FM
Tune in every Saturday in December from 3:00-4:00pm or Sundays at 7pm to hangout with this sweet nü metal band from Regina, Sk!
“You take the blue pill — the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill — you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.”
An ultimatum stemming from the 1999 science fiction film The Matrix, Flash Back are the auditory embodiment of unravelling the fabric of humankinds perceived reality via diving down the rabbit hole. Formed in November of 2018, Flash Back are hellbent on accepting the harsh reality of their simulated existence while simultaneously harnessing the nü metal sounds of their youth. Blending elements from the culture of their youth, with modern aesthetics and technology, Flash Back are picking up where nü metal left off and keeping it rolling with a fresh new twist. Falling heir to an obsession of 2000s pop culture from their older siblings, Flash Back are recapturing the feeling of a movement that they witnessed only a glimpse of. Evolving from a vast variety of musical backgrounds, including death-metal, indie-pop, hardcore, and post-rock, Flash Back continue to find new ways to infuse atmospheric emotions and dramatic climaxes into a genre notoriously known for it’s hard-hitting choruses and action-packed grooves. Having multiple producers in the band, Flash Back continually develop a strong relationship with the physical and technological worlds by incorporating an endless stream of samples, synthesizers and turntables that solidify the band’s distinct identity.
Releasing an EP in April of 2019, a two-song promo in the summer of 2020, and their most recent release – Wide Awake – Flash Back show no signs of easing their grip of reality’s neck. Dominating the Covid-19 quarantine with an excess of digital content, Flash Back now alter their aim to the physical realm with the release of new music and an onslaught of touring. With no end in sight, Flash Back are dead set on continuing to blend the population’s perceived reality with their take on the simulation of life.
