Later this week, the great Philly-via-LA punk band Girlpool are coming back with Powerplant, their second album and the first that they’ve recorded with a drummer. We’ve already posted their videos for “123” and “It Gets More Blue,” and now they’ve shared a third video for a third song. This one, for the album’s title track, is probably the best of the three. The song is fuzzy and longing and devastating. And in director Philip Steiger’s video, we see them playing to a small crowd in a bowling alley while the regular bowlers go about their business. Everyone in the video seems to have a face that tells a story, and there’s a meta-narrative touch at the end where a meddling director threatens to ruin things. Check it out below.
