Wild Flag Cures a Case of the Mondays in New Video for "Romance"

As we drag our feet back to the office on Tuesday morning bidding farewell to pool parties and umbrella drinks, girl supergroup Wild Flag lifts our spirits with its new video for "Romance."

Directed by funnyman Tom Scharpling, the video is very Point Break meets The Office, but replace the bank robbing with guerrilla album promoting -- which releases in a week from today. The video shows band members committing debaucherous acts while wearing animal masks, and its live clips give fans a taste of what to expect from a Wild Flag show. Here's hoping the ladies make it down to the Florida swamplands during the upcoming fall tour.

As far as the track itself, "Romance" provides a refreshing sound in comparison to the dream pop releases we've been hearing lately from the likes of the Dum Dum Girls and Vivian Girls. Its catchy and fun and makes you want to get out of that stiff office chair to dance on a slow Monday morning. In sum, it's just what you'd expect and want from the ladies of Wild Flag.
