New Wild Flag video for ‘Electric Band’

Another release from Portlandia darling Carrie Brownstein‘s new band Wild Flag, the video for “Electric Band” is another fun and Stumptowny exercise in hipster comedy. The concert on the softball/baseball diamond is pretty gay, and reminds us all of the recently lost summer. All the ladies are visions in their (modified or not) vintage tees and Brownstein is especially hot behind home base as the catcher of a bursting water balloon.

Timony also takes a bigger vocal role in this song, which is a nice change of pace, and a lovely reminder of her lilting Helium voice.

A little insight into the video from Brownstein comes via NPR:

We played baseball on a summer day against a bunch of bears. Then we set up our gear in the outfield. It was too strange and surreal of an idea to refuse. And we knew [directors] Lara [Gallagher] and Andrew [Ellmaker] would make everything look lush and dreamy, which is sometimes how music makes you feel when it’s coursing through your veins.
