Yesterday, we posted director Sean Dunne’s video for Okkervil River’s “Stay Young,” a gorgeous montage of young people dirtbiking and riding snowmobiles across ponds in New Hampshire. Lately, Okkervil River frontman Will Sheff has also been posting synthpop tracks online under the name Lovestreams, and now he’s remixed his own band’s song, giving “Stay Young” a lighter-than-air new-wavey makeover. And the video for that remix is a sort of DVD-extra from the “Stay Young” video: A continuous four-minute shot of a couple on an ATV, drinking and smoking and riding through the woods. It makes me wish I owned an ATV. Watch it below.
Okkervil River’s new album The Silver Gymnasium is out now on ATO.
