Wild Nothing – “Chinatown” Video

Earlier this year we premiered the hazed and ebullient “Chinatown,” by 21-year-old bedroom-pop standout Jack Tatum aka Wild Nothing. Its official video cribs footage from a 1969 short film called Clown, a recontextualization that’s striking and surprisingly apt: Guy Suzuki’s cinematography shift the locus from Chinatown to the terraces of Montmartre, and the song’s smeared sunlight pairs with the  yellowed clips perfectly.
