The Giraffes Release New Video “WASHING MACHINE”

As their first album in four years, “Usury amps up the Giraffes’ herky-jerk rhythms and spindly guitar elements,” (CMJ) and serves as both a comeback and throwback for the band. The new full-length is based around an antagonist in the form of the corporate stooge, who over the course of the album ultimately unravels from the corporate persona to be reset. “Washing Machine” was directed by the Andrei Zakow, Shawn Regruto and the team at Dirty Work (HBO, ESPN, Netflix,Pharrell Williams), who stated, “from the first listen, the song felt both seductive and disturbing. There’s a cinematic quality right from the start  and then it becomes this wild roller coaster ride.” Not only have The Giraffes toured alongside stalwarts, such as Local‐H, Eagles of Death Metal, The Vacation and Skeleton Key, they have shared stages with Interpol, Fishbone,Yeah Yeah Yeah’s and The Strokes. Locking in festival appearances at Amsterjam, Voodofest, Monolith, SXSW and Bonnaroo, The Giraffes have grown to be a nationally recognized independent act. With the release of Usury, the foursome continue to demonstrate that “a Giraffes performance is a spectacle you will never forget.” (Brooklyn Vegan)
