Mattiel has shared a video for track ‘Je Ne Me Connais Pas’.
The song is taken from forthcoming album ‘Satis Factory’, released on 14th June.
“There’s a line where I say ‘I’m a lone star man, I’m a dead ringer’,” Mattiel says. “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 light hearted. 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.”
