Jordan Lee's Mutual Benefit has just debuted a new video for "'Let's Play' / Statue of a Man" via The Wall Street Journal's Speakeasy blog. Directed by Stefan Grabrowski, the video was shot over the span of 6 months in and around Boston using mostly analog equipment and some experimental developing techniques. The resulting images have a frenetic, but also organic quality to them evoking the very personal and soul-searching nature of the song. As described by Jordan, " I think Stefan really captured the spirit of the song by finding the beauty of rusted train tracks and flooded ponds and mashing it all together into a colorful mess." Watch the video below and catch Mutual Benefit throughout the UK and North America this summer. They'll be touring the Northeast with Wild Beasts and playing a bunch of festivals, including the Pitchfork Music Festival, NXNE, Hopscotch, Pygmalion, Way Out West, Green Man, amongst others -- full listing of dates below the video. (Video should only be streamed at 1080p high definition.)
