The new FLAX track “More Love” is emotional, visceral, and will give you all the feels. It’s out February 7 via their forthcoming, self-titled EP.

“’More Love’ takes on our internet obsession with a compassionate yet critical view of its double-edged, self-delusioned sword only to come to the conclusion, as John Lennon and The Beatles did 50 years ago, all you need is more love (“It’s the best self that you’re gonna be/Emotional technology”),” the band explain.

This new record offers an unflinching, birds-eye view of modern-day life’s highs and lows with a slyly self-effacing, sometimes jaundiced eye, framing such topics as social media, addiction, mortality, and identity through the prism of an experienced, award-winning TV journalist, documentary filmmaker, and now, singer-songwriter-guitarist.

Produced in New Orleans’ The Living Room by Zack Feinberg, lead guitarist for platinum band The Revivalists, the EP features their first single, “Language of the Birds,” articulating the horror of addiction and managing pain, the lure of the sky above, and the agony of withdrawal on the ground below.

Check them out at their album release show in support of the new record on February 11 at Joe’s Pub, NYC. Grab tickets here.
