If I were a sentient scarecrow and I were so ineffective that crows had no qualms about perching on my shoulders, I would probably be knotted with anguish and existential despair. The delightful Maxwell Sorensen-directed video for the title track from These United States’ Everything Touches Everything depicts a more devil-may-care farm appliance, who chooses instead to throw caution to the wind and rock out with his sworn avian nemeses. The song is big, both in its chunky, delicious chords, its finger-mashing treatment of the piano, and its unbridled enthusiasm, as the band sings, “it is breathtaking just to be here”. The video could not be more fun. It just couldn’t.


But wait, there’s more! These United States have just announced a bunch of tour dates with Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson, which you can find after the jump.
