2019 mini album also available in CD.
‘Into The Iris’ features six new songs from Los Angeles punk trio Flat Worms, this new release follows their 2017 self-titled debut album. ‘Into The Iris’ is filled with anxiety and angst and the band summon perseverance in an apocalyptic era, passing through decrepit strip malls and surreal headlines.
Featuring Tim Hellman (Thee Oh Sees), Justin Sullivan (Night Shop, Kevin Morby) and Will Ivy (Dream Boys), Flat Worms have consistently churned out murky garage punk with an energy level that parallels an eight-year-old with a sugar rush. Their zippy ripper of a new single is a call to keep your eyes on the prize in an era of relentless distraction and nonsense—after all, social media really is just a glorified, public avenue for people to shout at walls. With a wave of twitchy, heavily distorted guitars, lead vocalist Will Ivy exudes a stark, smirking calmness amongst the electrifying storm.Into The Iris was recorded by Ty Segall in his home and, according to a press release, “is a persistent, determined response to an apocalyptic era, one that sees deserted strip malls and surreal headlines.”
