Cat Velez - 28th Sept 2015

In Dylan Pharazyn's video for punk trio Die! Die! Die!'s Out Of Mind, two friends explore the outskirts of a desolate, middle-of-nowhere New Zealand town, as last night's drugs begin to wear off. And then we start to realise that things are not quite what they seem.

It's an atmospheric, unsettling piece from the Auckland-based director, who has also directed videos for She's So Rad, SJD and Dimmer, and building up an impressive body of work in the process.
