Atlanta indie rock trio Mansell have released the official music video for their single, “Ghost”. The track comes from their latest record, Mantra, an eight-song offering that was released earlier this year.
The video was conceptualized by a friend of the band, John Gray. “We all feel like kin to one another, so the understanding and chemistry there on multiple levels was a comfort in letting another artist interpret your music emotionally the way John did,” says vocalist Holden Fincher. “He essentially dove into the song for an extensive period, and analyzed it in depth. He would call or we’d be together and he would just say how many times he had really listened to that song to really breathe it in and know it, and we’d discuss every little thing about it. The emotional pulls of the song itself, as well as who we are as artists, and what the project ‘Mantra’ was to us were put through the mind and emotion of himself artistically. The finished product is the collision of that knowledge and he as an artist. Like a Basquiat and Warhol collab or salty fries with a chocolate shake.”
