Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter RIVVRS takes a break from music in favor of a regular 9-to-5 in the video for his latest single “Don’t Wanna Know," exclusively premiering on Billboard today (July 11).
In a song that follows an admirable, H.R.-approved policy of keeping your outside hobbies at home, RIVVRS (née Brandon Zahursky) embraces his comfort zone rather than conforming to anyone else’s rules or expectations. It harkens to a slower, simpler time in Zahursky’s career when he “used to work in an office very similar to the one in the video” that apparently did not leave him with the best impression of cubicle life.
The video, directed by Noah Applebaum, plays on a wealth of drab office conventions including ironic inspirational posters and cringe-worthy birthday celebrations. It marks the third collaboration between the singer and director, following “Ready to Begin” and “Don't Give Up On Me.”
