New Wavves Video: “No Hope Kids”


Wavves have a new video out, for Wavvves standout track “No Hope Kids.” The basic material will be familiar to anyone who watched the “Daytripping with Wavves” segment on Pitchfork, or to anyone who’s seen any footage of Nathan Williams, ever: he’s walking around some bleached-out urban wasteland, he’s making ironic product endorsements, he’s playing shows for people as mesmerized by their cell phones as they are by his hype. The only difference is that this is Wavves’ video, not somebody’s video of Wavves. Shot back in the halcyon February days of Williams’s last European tour, the guy basically looks like he’s having fun–nice to see, given what’s happened since.
