The punk rock all-star team of Wild Flag have a new video for “Electric Band,” a rave-up track from their excellent self-titled debut. In the Hollerings-directed clip, the members of the band play baseball against a team of actual bears, and the whole thing obviously leads to an inspirational sports-movie finish. Just like the band’s video for “Romance,” it’s a giddy, fun little narrative, and it shows that Janet Weiss has the same sketch-comedy chops that Carrie Brownstein does. Weiss’s badass pitcher: Completely believable!
Releasing this video at one of those rare moments when people actually care about baseball: Well-played.
