** VIDEO PREMIERE ** Matter Of Mind - Stay
Words: Linn Branson
Stockport's new rising stars, Matter Of Mind, follow last year's debut EP 'A State Of Mind' and this April's single 'Far Too Wrong', with 'Stay', which was released at the end of July.
Now the indie four-piece - all still in their late teens - share their impressively classy video to 'Stay', which Little Indie is pleased to bring you the premiere of.
The video was shot by award-winning filmmaker Callum Scott-Dyson of CSD Videography, and filmed in one day around the areas of Whaley Bridge and the Peak District to Salford Pomona Island.
"The slow-mo shots were filmed at exactly twice the speed of the actual song - so we had to play to the song twice as fast," the band tell Little Indie. "This turned out to be much more difficult than we first expected which resulted in J [vocalist/ guitarist Jordan Lambert] landing on his arse during one of the takes. The idea was to achieve an 'in time' slow-mo effect."
Capturing the band performing the song in a derelict building and an outside location, its style perfectly complements 'Stay's hooky melodies and raw, hammered guitar sound.
"What the song means to me personally, is that someone very close to me has recently moved away, and I wrote the lyrics as an almost coping mechanism to help with the situation," says J.
Keep an eye on the band's Facebook page for upcoming live dates. Their EP, 'Dead Apologies', is set for release in November.
Matter Of Mind are: Jordan Lambert - (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Rob Bramwell - (bass), Ash Meadowcroft - (lead guitar), Connor McQue - (drums, backing vocals).
