Connecticut indie rock band Speedy Ortiz has had a huge year and a half, piling up accolades for “Major Arcana,” their debut album, and touring through Europe and North America.

The band, which includes lead singer Sadie Dupuis, of Washington, and drummer Mike Falcone, of Trumbull, enjoyed an icing-on-the-cake moment recently when they performed at the Pitchfork Music Festival, which took place at Chicago’s Union Park from July 18 to 20. They performed “Major Arcana” track “Tiger Tank,” and “Oxygal,” a song taken from their recently released EP, “Real Hair.”

The band just wrapped up a North American tour and are now on their way to the U.K.

Check out videos of the performance (via Pitchfork Media), below, as well as the video for “Real Hair” track “American Horror.”
