This week we celebrate overdosing on rock-stardom. One song at a time. Because, why not?
All-female, indie-rock band Wild Flag (who tore it up @ Black Cat this Spring and will be returning on October 20th, with Eleanor Friedberger opening to boot)— which consists of former Sleater-Kinney bandmates Carrie Brownstein and Janet Weiss, Helium’s Mary Timony, and former Minders member Rebecca Cole — just dropped their first album on MERGE (YESTERDAY!) , so today seems like a perfect time to play the video for their first single, “Romance,” in which they all play bored silly office drones who all say “fuck it” and go on a pink volvo, costumed and ready to rumble.
Think of it as an indie-rock “9-5″, which, when you think of it-is as close to perfection as it’s gonna get this fall.
