PREMIERE: Mammals takes over a Brooklyn warehouse for ‘Mansion’ video
Guy Brown, better known as MAMMALS, made his return this month with one of his most beautiful singles yet. Titled ‘Mansion’, the song is classically Mammals thanks to its deep, emotive quality paired with intricate, melodic and emotionally-moving beats. It’s a song that stops you in your tracks and effortlessly commands your attention, and now the Mollymook artist is doubling down on this with the release of some stunning accompanying visuals which we’re thrilled to be premiering today.
Exploring the intricacies of human existence is not an easy feat, but Mammals, alongside good friend Jordan Lister, pulls it off without a hitch. Filmed at The 1896 in New York, the video beautifully pairs a water-inspired colour palette within the sparse Brooklyn warehouse location. Complete with dancers writhing about in interpretive and abstract moves, its a visually stunning video that amplifies the deep, underlying emotive core of the song.
Mammals said of the clip, “I flew to New York for the first time to work with my good friend Jordan Lister for the Mansion clip. We wanted to explore the sense of water and space in the themes of the song. Using a huge silk sheet and this crazy old abandoned warehouse we went from just being underwater to a whole other dimension. We didn’t have much time in the warehouse so we found another crazy zone that we were quickly yelled at and chased out of having lugged all the gear up 4 flights of stairs.”
