Watch Lilac's Woozy, Barbecue-Tastic Video for "So Young"

San Francisco indie band Lilac released a pretty decent video for new single "So Young" yesterday. The video's description notes that it was shot on July 4, "with close friends at a Mission District backyard BBQ" -- and that's pretty much all you have to know.

Like the song itself, the video is woozy and dreamy, with shots of fireworks superimposed over the barbecue and a performance that seems only loosely connected to the music. The clip meanders through the day's activities -- with plenty of Tecate and grilling, of course. Check it out after the jump.

"So Young" was released online on June 7 as part of the band's S/T EP. Vinyl copies of the EP will be available in stores on July 19.

Lilac hits the Independent with Zodiac Death Valley and Cannons and Clouds on July 21.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
