As promised, Brooklyn-based alternative rockers They Might Be Giants have kicked off 2015 with the launch of their rebooted Dial-A-Song service (previously), beginning with the song and music video, “Erase.” The video is an abstract parade of geometric shapes directed by New York City-based designer Paul Sahre, while the song, fittingly, explores themes of starting over.
Press erase, ignore the shrill alarms
See the way the deep sea diver falls into the mermaid’s arms
Put one box on the sidewalk then you return with the next and the first one’s gone
Everyone gets on the bus out of town and the lights start going out one by one
