Jane Wiedlin's Elettrodomestico Premieres Zany New Video via BlackBook

Elettrodomestico is back at it again, flexing their creative style of vision and foresight with their new video "Mail Order Bride." Written by the duo Jane Wiedlin (The Go-Go's) and Pietro Straccia, the psych-pop outfit teamed up with director Gareth Goochand and edited by Eddie Rifkind to release a creative and quirky music video that does not disappoint.

The "Mail Order Bride" video has Jane and Pietro portrayed as a married couple while acting out various activities in their living room, resulting in a video reminiscent of an "I Love Lucy" episode. The couple goes from playing sports to a night at the Opera, all while playing with gender roles. The video takes place at the legendary Oasis Nightclub in the SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco.

You may know the duo from their first song "Rabbit Stew," which was inspired and influenced by the death of David Bowie back in January of 2016. They met in 2014 in San Francisco, CA. With strong attributes in rebellion and a rock and roll lifestyle, it would only be natural that Jane Wiedlin (the founder of the Go-Go's) would continue to create music after the all-female band retired from touring 2016.

The real and raw response to their collaboration was the motivation needed to
continue writing and producing. Even though they had no actual band in mind,
they enjoyed the process so much that they continued writing together for the
rest of 2016. By December, the duo wound up with enough material for a full-
length album and decided to start a band together. Because Pietro is Italian, they
came up with the band name Elettrodomestico, which means "appliance" in Italian. This seemed fitting, since the duo use multiple electronic and robotic
sounds on their recordings. While many of the lyrics explore alienation and
despair, the sound of the duo is markedly upbeat, with layered guitars, intricate
harmonies, and four-to- the-floor pop drumbeats.This product came together in a variety of locations, recorded at Lucky Recording and Pietro's home studio between February 2016 and April 2017.

You can pre-order Elettrodomestico's amazing new record If You're a Boy or a Girl, via their Bandcamp page.
