A little over a year ago we gave Girls their NYC debut. Today we get a video in support of an old 7″ track that shows up on their debut Album. If you’re not familiar, yes it’s a different “Lust For Life,” but Girls’ tune has an uppity and excited hedonism that Iggy would also embrace. The Aaron Brown-directed video includes some of the folks you’ll remember from the epic up-all-night “Hellhole Ratrace” clip (which Brown co-directed). Hopefully they stick with this Nan Goldin/Ryan McGinley aesthetic for the rest of the collection: It works excellently with the San Francisco duo’s ragged, androgynous, carefree (but not pain-free) vibe. In other words, they have a song called “Solitude,” though you get the sense they aren’t often alone.
