Here’s an unexpectedly effective music video pitch: Let’s follow a housekeeper around her shift at a dingy motel. Mikal Cronin juxtaposes his upbeat “Peace of Mind” with this simple, not-exactly-upbeat plot to create a touching clip. Wild Flag member Mary Timony, an indie-rock legend since her Helium days, plays the housekeeper, who’s obviously tired of the monotony of her day job. Lara Gallagher, who co-directed Wild Flag’s baseball-themed “Electric Band” video, directs. Watch her visuals for Cronin’s MCII track above.
