This week, Wild Flag premiered their new video for "Electric Band" from their self-titled debut album at NPR.org. The video features Mary, Carrie, Janet & Rebecca playing baseball against a bunch of bears, a seemingly incongruous story that is somehow perfect for the spirit and energy of the song and the band.
Wild Flag are in the midst of their US tour. Pitchfork reviewed their NYC show saying, "Gloriously loud, compact, no-frills show that affirms this supergroup's existence as a victory lap rather than an afterthought." Popmatters declared, "By the time Wild Flag finished their scorching set, every band labeled as “chillwave” had burst into flames, forever." .
