Days before Valentine's Day this year—thanks for the love, Ben & Jimmy!—The Postal Service surprised us with a new hit, "A Tattered Line of String," present on the 10th anniversary deluxe reissue of Give Up.
Since then, the duo—joined by pal Jenny Lewis—has been gracing venues all over the globe, giving fans a live dose of their well-loved indie pop creation that caused such a beautiful ruckus back in '03.
Above is the official video for "A Tattered Line of String" directed by AB/CD/CD. Click play now, to see why laundry is anything but mundane for The Postal Service.
Spoiler alert: there is an undulating pile of clothes—what?!
