WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In, Turn Up): Wild Flag “Romance”

words by Dori Zori

If you love lady bands as much as I do, you will heart this new single by Wild Flag. Who’s in the band, you ask? Singing and playing guitars are Carrie Brownstein (Excuse 17 and Sleater-Kinney) and Mary Timony (Helium), Rebecca Cole (The Minders) on keyboards and Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks) on drums. That is a lot of talent and music history in one band. Their self-titled debut album (Merge Records) will be out in stores on September 13th. In the meantime, check out their first video for “Romance” and mark your calendars for Sunday, October 9th when they play the Empty Bottle in Chicago.
