Flanch is a ambitious new musical and visual project of Peter Timberlake and Ben Peterson featuring contributions from a host of artists they have become friends with over the years including Indianapolis rappers Devin Dabney and Sirius Blvck, LA-based Trackless frontman Jeremy Jones, Chicago actress/singer Krystal Worrell, and Bloomington’s Stone Irr. It combines Timberlake’s background in classical composition and Peterson’s audio/music technology creating an off-center aesthetic that will draw comparisons to Arca and his visual collaborator Jesse Kanda. According to Timerblake, they use Christian and Catholic iconography in “an attempt to harness the reverence and divine purpose inherent to Christianity and reconcile it with the limitlessly meaningless landscape of twitter and tinder and target.” He continues, ” lyrical material is borrowed explicitly from the Old Testament book of “Song of Solomon”, which is a canonical book describing the sexual relationship between solomon and his lover in ancient poetry.”

To launch the project, we have the opening track “graace” along with a menacing visual found below. Featured in the song is the previously mentioned Devin Dabney who was instructed to write about “stuff you might see on a tinder chat, but between two automated sex bots, and if tinder was actually a christian dating site” or “a worship album for people who forgot about god.” The self-titled debut is set for release on February 9th via new label Darling Records, who will be releasing the LP on limited edition pink cassette available for pre-order here.
