“Vomit,” the moodily meditative first single from Girls’ forthcoming, second LP Father, Son, Holy Ghost now has an official video directed by Austin Rhodes. It’s crisp and sharp in a way that’s quite distinct from the band’s earlier, very memorable Focus Creeps clips, but is similarly vivid and transfixing. Chris Owens sings about spending nights alone looking for love, and most of the video focuses solely on a beautiful 1966 Ford Mustang convertible driving on remarkably empty urban streets. Eventually Chris’s teeth make an appearance, then his hands on a guitar, then his whole face, and Girls’ bassist JR White also stops in. But mostly this is an attempt to convey desolation and alienation in spite of a lifestyle of beauty and certain abundance, which a lonely, cherry red Ford Mustang cruising around the city streets nails pretty well.
