D E N A – Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools

“Cash, Diamond Rings, Swimming Pools” is about as addictive as a song can get. From the catchy/cute chorus that immediately embeds itself into your brain, to the casual, rolling, old skool, lo-fi dance beats, this song has got it going on. On top of that D E N A is just full of awkward nerdy swagger in the video. Love the fashion choices, especially that floral-print suit she wears. The video reminds me a lot of Grimes’ “Oblivion” video, in that they kept a lot of the spontaneous reactions from the random people at the flea market that they walked by while filming, giving each frame a certain cinéma vérité quality that is endlessly entertaining to watch. (Fun fact: The nerdy guy she grabs by the arm and starts dancing with is Erlend Øye.)
