New DIIV video is NSFW, resembles Urban Outfitters catalog

Post Author:

Fresh off the heels of a very “raw” photoshoot with Terry Richardson, Zachary Cole Smith and his muse Sky Ferreira are parading their young love again in a video for Smith's band DIIV. The video is for the song “Wait” off of their debut record, Oshin, and with our untrained eyes, it seems that the inspiration is either the early 90s or an Urban Outfitters catalog from last week. And given DIIV's admiration for the band Nirvana, we wonder what Kurt Cobain would have to say about all the 90s revivalism we're seeing these days. Oh, and happy birthday, Kurt.

Directed by Sandy Kim, paramour of DIIV drummer, Colby Hewitt, the NSFW video was filmed on Super 8 film and cut together to resemble a summer firework or a 70s porn or whatever soft colors 15-year-old might dream in. There is no shortage of panty flashes, naked boobies, coquettish looks, and summer fun in the city. For better or for worse.
