Girls’ pretty up-all-night video for “Hellhole Ratrace” captured the song’s romantic somnambulance perfectly. The harmonica-lined “Solitude,” which shows up as the “Hellhole Ratrace” 10″ B-Side, conjures an after-hours feel, but with a prom-y two-step (a la Modest Mouse’s appropriately titled “Sleepwalking”) and a half-awake, much older Bright Eyes-enunciation. The track’s called “Solitude,” but Christopher Owens and Chet “JR” White are anything but lonely in the above pic. Their 12-song Album is forthcoming, which should find them even more friends.
