new vivian girls :: "moped girls"

Here's the new video for Vivian Girls' latest single, "Moped Girls," which Rough Trade calls "one minute and 54 seconds of reverb drenched indie pop perfection that sounds like it should have been released in 1986 on the subway organization or 53rd and 3rd records."

Get Vivian Girls' Moped Girls/Death 7" here while it lasts.

Love it. Their new material at the Middle East the other night was great, can't wait to see how they follow up their debut.

I can't believe someone beat me to the "Yep. Still terrible" post. I'll go with awful, then.

I think that the song has a decent little solo section, monochromatic buried vocals that are pretty out of tune, and not much else going for it. It's just not very memorable at all. Their songs are barely songs, wisps of things that don't leave any impression. Oh, and the production is the kind of lazy recording that's signifies musical purity to some when it really means not trying very hard.

I do think the video is very good, though.

that was bad, and i love vivian girls. "hey, i have an idea, let's make a really short song with terrible melody and turn the reverb knob up past 100. that'll make a good song, you know?" vivian girls, if yr reading this, what happened? :(

video was cool, though.

I keep feeling like Vivian Girls try to sound like Cub, but can't quite get there. So you get this.
Wasn't impressed with them live either. Ah well.
