Jack White-approved, Atlanta-based Mattiel have just unveiled the film clip to latest single "Je Ne Me Connais Pas." Taken from their forthcoming album, Satis Factory, this is another alternative rock explosion with a '60s twist that's sure to get you going.
"Je Ne Me Connais Pas" is a groovy track full of life that's held together by a wicked guitar solo and frontwoman Mattiel Brown's gorgeous vocals and playful lyrics. The French title of the song translates to "I don't know myself," something depicted comically but with a touch of seriousness in the Jason Travis directed video. Speaking on the clip, Brown told Refinery29;
In ‘Je Ne Me Connais Pas,' there’s a line where I say 'I’m a lone star man. I think the concept for the video stems from this — and it also stems from the dualities of my personality. But it’s absolutely exaggerated and lighthearted. We had a blast making it — and it was fun to freak myself out in the mirror. I genuinely felt different in drag, and I had a great time exploring this dirtbag character I conjured up. I learned that manspreading is a choice, and facial hair is really itchy. And I felt absolutely disgusting by the time we wrapped the shoot, so it was very much an immersive experience.
This is a really top-notch track, and if you're digging it be sure to check out their previous single "Keep The Change."
Satis Factory is set for release June 14.
