Each song deserve a good video! This is now the case for Mitski‘s latest single “Happy.” The amazing track has now a Maegan Houang-directed video that is both beautiful and macabre. If you don’t like blood, you shouldn’t watch, for the others, get ready to be surprised!
The video takes place in the middle of the last century. For the Mad Men‘s fans, you wish Don Draper appeared on the screen at some point. It relates the typical story of an obedient woman and her husband, who is a liar and who cheats on her. The actress Lisa Maley is particularly good! The photography is polished and there are quite some references to famous movies such as “Citizen Kane” or “In The Mood For Love”. Concerning the tension that is growing, we could also refer Alfred Hitchcock. And as the master of suspense would achieve to do: you will be surprised when it ends!
Mitski will release her new album “Puberty 2” on June 17 via Dead Oceans.
The LP features the excellent “Happy” and the previous single “Your Best American Girl“. You can pre-order it on iTunes here. She will also go back on stage to support the LP. For our Brussels friends, don’t miss her at the Ancienne Belgique in September. Don’t forget to buy your tickets here. The previous show was sold-out and who knows what she could do to you…
