Earlier this year Exploding In Sound Records released Here Comes Washer, the debut album by the Brooklyn duo of Mike Quigley and Kieran McShane. Together the pair make up Washer, and today The A.V. Club is premiering the video for “Mend.” While the song is goofy fun, seeing Quigley and McShane go fishing for all manner of items, the track’s title and lyrics work toward self-reflection. When Quigley sings about attempting to “discard the awful truth” it’s not an attempt to bury his head in the sand as much as it is a way of pushing forward, taking the facts of the world and finding ways to turn those roadblocks into new beginnings.
