Because indie rock does not have enough girls who rock. Because indie rock does not have enough rock kicks and windmills and fun. Seriously, when did indie rock stop being fun. “Romance” by Wild Flag is, more than anything else, fun. Yes, it’s a supergroup of ’90s faves like Sleter-Kinney’s Carrie Brownstein and Helium’s Mary Timony, but what makes the video and the song, is the free-wheeling nature of it all. Skittish verses lead to a full-on, Go-Gos chorus, and hi-jinks about town lead to more and more hi-jinks.
