After detailing We Can Do Anything, their first album in 16 years, Violent Femmes shared the lead single “Memory” — a frantic, folky upstart. Now that the album is out, they’ve given “Memory” a matching set of visuals, and the video mirrors the song to a tee. Animated pictures drift crudely across the screen like a moving collage as the song careens along. Members of the band appear as cutouts interacting with a seemingly anything that comes to mind from bald eagles to giraffes, to flying bicycles and beach chairs. It’s a bit of a wacky video, but it’s very fitting for the song. Watch.
We Can Do Anything is out now.
