Video Premiere: The Frail, ‘You Just Wanna Leave’
The Frail take a West Coast road trip in their “You Just Wanna Leave” video.
What’s your idea of the perfect summer day? If you’re San Francisco electro-pop outfit The Frail, then it’s probably driving around in a convertible with the top down, leafing through record bins, perusing flea markets, gathering around the bonfire — all with hoodies on, obviously. I mean, it’s still San Francisco.
Fortunately for us, SF’s oddly plunging summertime temps will NOT get in the way of The Frail’s super-fun day trip-themed video, “You Just Wanna Leave,” a brand-new cut from the band’s forthcoming debut album, LoveDeathLegend.

Fading in with a Michael Jackson/”Billie Jean” staccato inhale, the Frank Door-directed “You Just Wanna Leave” — which is shot in black-and-white with splashes of neon color — features The Frail’s Daniel Lannon, Kevin Durr, Izzy Chavarin, and Andrew Gomez traveling down the road in a sweet-looking vintage Chevy with some very cute, leather jacket-wearing lady friends. Who cares where they’re headed? They “just wanna leave”…presumably the city. And you know what that means… ROAD TRIP!
When they’re not cruising around and beyond SF, The Frail squeeze in plenty of pit stops for the aforementioned record shopping, flea market browsing, and sparkler-by-the-bonfire throwing, but add in some scenic pier-sitting, and the crew’s just generally looking like, as Cher Horowitz would say, “a Noxzema commercial.” We can practically hear The Muffs singing now.
Look out for The Frail’s Patrick Brown-produced debut, LoveDeathLegend, when it drops later this year.
