Old Flame
Old Flame
Old Flame is a machine of resistance. Born in the Amherst, MA DIY scene, the indie-rock band spins grit and honey-rasp vocals into a psychedelic post-punk nostalgia with an afterglow of raw blues. Old Flame is comprised of Emma Ayres (Emma June), Sam Perry (Dios Trio), Ken Birchall (Eric Culberson band), and Nate Mondschein (The Rooks).

Since forming in 2017, Old Flame has been nominated by The Deli Magazine as “New England Artist of the Month,” and released “Wolf In The Heather EP.” The album documents the rise of the Trump presidency, and was lauded by The Valley Advocate for its “acid-tongued lyrics that rail against corporate capitalism and capture the spirit of proto-punk in a bottle; a rollicking anarchistic flair for damning it all to hell.” In the words of ‘Ear To The Ground Music’: "Love this sound, retro and brand new all at the same time. Toes the line of vintage & psych rock. Addictively good."

They have also released “The Dream Reservoir Picture Show,” a low-phi surrealist kaleidoscopic film reel, recorded the exclusive acoustic collection “Emily Tapes” in Emily Dickinson’s Amherst MA bedroom, and organized “A Night of Primary Source Performance," working in concert with The Women of Rock Oral History Project to showcase women in rock who’ve been underrepresented — or not represented at all — by rock journalism and historical scholarship.

Old Flame is currently in the midst of a cross country tour to SXSW in advance of the release of their second EP, "Hush Money," to be debuted at The Parlor Room in Northampton, MA on March 27th.
