New Zealand's Ghost Wave are prepping for the August 27 release of their debut album — Ages, on the way via Flying Nun Records — with a video for "Bootlegs," another frothy single from the jangly outfit's upcoming full-length. Like its title suggests, the "Bootlegs" clip concerns itself with authenticity. But the black-and-white piece isn't some anti-piracy PSA; it's a mini-movie that fixates on a single flower, which sprouts from the concrete of a cruddy parking lot, and on an obsessive vagrant desperate to preserve its beauty. Watch the video above, and stream "Here She Comes," the lead single off Ages, at Ghost Wave's website
