The third video off the San Francisco band Girls’ release Father, Son, Holy Ghost debuted February 27 via the Team Coco website. Its plaintive lyrics are sweetly sung by songwriter Christopher Owen, who wrote the tune along with Chet “JR” White. Owen’s background includes an upbringing in the Children of God cult (which he escaped by following an older sister from Slovenia to Texas at age sixteen) and recent heavy drug addiction, so his rich delivery has a harried history behind it. 

The video doesn’t show any band members, but depicts an elderly couple out living out in the wilderness. It was directed and edited by Aaron Brown (Focus Creeps). At least the group can be seen soon on Conan March 22 and along a West Coast tour which includes Coachella. The band also announced the release of a 7” single of “My Ma b/w Love Life” on May 22, a one-time pressing of 1000. Per usual, Owen has designed the artwork for this special edition.
