Watch Rilo Kiley’s ‘Emotional’ New Video Full of Old Footage

Rilo Kiley 'Emotional' Video RKives

Rilo Kiley called it quits in 2011 after 13 years as a band, but this year delivered RKives, a set of B-sides and outtakes so strong it could function as a primer. With no reunion in the offing, Jenny Lewis and co. are doing their best to make do with what they’ve got. In March they offered up the video for “Let Me Back In,” chock full of their own RKival tour footage. Now we’ve got a clip for “Emotional” made up of found footage of folks in the ’50s and ’60s feeling things strongly. The track itself is a roller-coaster of vibes, contrasting intensely pretty sing-songin’ with pretty intense Saddle Creek-y shredding. It’s no Too $hort collabo, but really, what is? In other Lewis news, she had a big summer with the Postal Service, recorded a song for True Blood with War-bringer Eric Burdon, is likely nearing completion on her next solo album, and was tapped to score an upcoming Anne Hathaway film with her beau Jonathan Rice
