Video: DIIV, "Doused"

"Doused" is my favorite DIIV single because it feels like a song that only DIIV could make. What I mean is, throughout Oshin, the band works to create a single, overarching mood of swirling guitars and moody, semi-unintelligible lyrics. It's a strong theme, and they find plenty to play around with within it. "Doused" is the moment that all that angst and unreleased tension boils over into a hypnotic four minute track. It's when DIIV became more than a great band from Brooklyn. Appropriately, this video, directed by Ian Perlman and DIIV's Zachary Cole Smith, immerses itself in that concept by embracing the band's stomping grounds. The live footage was shot at the Williamsburg venue 285 Kent, and there's a clear freakout enthusiasm here, like maybe DIIV are really starting to mean something to kids that are waiting around for something to care about.
