Mutual Benefit Shares New Video, Announces Tour Dates

Mutual Benefit has debuted a new video for their song “‘Let’s Play’ / Statue of a Man” to accompany the announcement of a slew of new dates being added to their current tour. The video is directed by Stefan Grabrowski and features visual montages and overlays of footage. The content for the video was developed over a period of months around Boston using primarily analog tools, which definitely contributes to the video’s appeal. Of the video, Lee commented, ” 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 see the band on tour in the US this summer with Wild Beasts. Full list of dates follows the embed.
