In anticipation of his debut LP set to be released by Captured Tracks early this summer, Cole Smith (better known as DIIV) takes a very hands-on approach for his latest music video. The video for “How Long Have You Known?”—the fifth track off of Oshin—follows Smith in his incredibly intricate quest to create a special type of drug.
The video cuts back and forth between watching the live band version of DIIV (which now includes Colby Hewitt, Devin Ruben Perez and Andrew Bailey) and Smith going all Breaking Bad on us by throwing together parts of light bulbs, cassette tapes, candy bars and magazine cutouts into a blender to try and get the perfect high.
You can study his drug recipe in the video below. Also if you like what you hear, DIIV is heading out on tour, dates below.
