Today, San Francisco’s Reisender releases Fmly, their first since their 2016 debut. To celebrate, they’ve released the video for their latest single, “Naked Eyes,” as well.
You might already have heard that Reisender started with a busted mandolin copped at a flea market in Germany (“Reisender” is German for “traveler”). The mando has always been present in Reisender’s repertoire, but on Fmly, bandleader Paul Conroy leans even further into synth-fueled pop sounds. However, this time there seems to be a drop of darkness added. But honestly, aren’t we all feeling that these days?
(The plague masks also feel appropriate for this point in time, TBH.)
Fmly includes previous singles with “Slowmotional” and “Generation 1099.” New music on the way soon — keep an eye on Reisender.
