Brooklyn’s Foyer Red have shared a new single, ‘Flipper’, their first new music since their 2021 debut EP Zigzag Wombat. The band recorded the track with Jonathan Schenke (Snail Mail, Parquet Courts, Liars, The Drums), and you can listen to it below.
“‘Flipper’ is a song we’ve been playing around with for a while now, but has more recently grown into itself,” lead singer Elana Riordan explained in a press release. “The song is kind of disjointed in its short, disconnected sections and in the way its subject vacillates between “reality” and a dreamt-up post-apocalyptic world. It takes on a satirical persona who drones on dramatically about hunger; the kind of silly girl (me) who goes to the bodega to buy more rolling papers and hangs out for a long while looking at snacks, waiting for something to happen. When I see the ending of the song, it is rust-red desert; it is cracked, scorched Earth, with yet again, no consumables! In its big, chaotic ending, the song’s narrator finds rage and strength, in a way that will protect her for millions of years.”
