Over the previous few days, Troye Sivan has been teasing his newest launch—a revamp of his monitor “Simple” from earlier this 12 months, this time that includes Kacey Musgraves and Mark Ronson—via snippets of the video posted to his social media accounts. Followers have been significantly intrigued by his daring new mullet. (You possibly can take the boy out of Australia, it appears, however you may’t take Australia out of the boy.) And when the Bardia Zeinali-directed video lastly dropped this morning, it supplied a full-throttle dive bar trend fantasy that may have you ever firmly pining after a post-lockdown evening out on the tiles.
Starting in a dimly-lit motel room, Sivan sits moodily whereas Musgraves tends to her newly-dyed hair within the rest room. The pair set off into the Nashville evening in a classic automobile, like Bonnie and Clyde (minus, properly, the crime). Stopping by a line-dancing class, an underground membership the place drag queen Jorgeous sings mournfully into her microphone on a lonely stage, and a neon-lit curb exterior an grownup toy retailer, the star of the present turns into the pair of untamed seems to be the pair sport within the course of.
For Sivan, this implies a natty tank high with a short-sleeved Adidas zip-up and flared denim. In one other scene, he wears a pair of ripped jean shorts pulled slightly below the waist to disclose a switch tattoo studying “simple.” (Stylist Mel Ottenberg shared the look on his Instagram, and famous that the shorts have been sourced from a New York classic retailer.) Musgraves, in the meantime, sports activities a equally outré look, that includes a spangly, white sequined mini gown, a thigh-skimming fur coat, and a pair of vertiginous excessive heels. Within the last stretch of the video, Musgraves takes to the dive bar flooring to carry out a lap dance, dramatically dropping the fur coat to the ground within the course of. Appears like an evening out for the books.
