Vivian Girls Release New Video ‘Take It As It Comes’
aaamusic | On 27, Jul 2011
Following on from their UK tour last week, Vivian Girls have released a brand new video for album track ‘Take It As It Comes’.
‘Take It As It Comes’ is a wry 50s girl band pastiche taken from Vivian Girls’ latest album ‘Share The Joy’ (out now on Polyvinyl Records). The song is accompanied with an accordingly tongue in check promo clip, which witnesses Cassie, Katy and Fiona sharing relationship advise from their ‘Pretty In Pink’-style bedrooms.
Watch ‘Take It As It Comes’ here, directed by Travis Peterson:
On their third album (and Polyvinyl debut) ‘Share the Joy’, Brooklyn’s Vivian Girls continue to sharpen and refine their transcendent mix of garage thrash, girl-group warmth and infectious pop hooksmanship. The trio’s vibrant blend of guitar noise and melodic sweetness has already made Vivian Girls one of America’s most celebrated and influential young bands, and has helped to spark a wave of similarly-inclined female-fronted acts who’ve followed in their wake.
The ten-song ‘Share the Joy’ finds the threesome-guitarist/vocalist Cassie Ramone, bassist/vocalist Kickball Katy and new drummer Fiona Campbell-continuing to evolve and expand, building on the D.I.Y. achievements of their 2008 debut Vivian Girls and its 2009 follow-up ‘Everything Goes Wrong’ while delivering their most memorable songs and most focused performances yet. Their new tunes successfully venture into challenging new musical and lyrical territory, reflecting the band members’ developing instrumental rapport and their far-reaching musical influences, while retaining the raw immediacy that originally endeared the group to its fans.
