A while back I featured a piece on the absolutely gorgeous Superblue EP by Mannequins on 7’th Street. You can check out that write up here. Now they return to my radar, with a stunning video for their song ‘Free From Real’ about a child chasing the wind, and ultimately finding himself through the chase.
Matching the moody nature of the song, the slow moving yet rivoting video is the perfect accompiniment to a weekend of contemplation. The video was done by the CHPT.01 Collective, and they had this to say about it:
When we listen to Mannequins on 7’th Street we instantly feel a blue colour, a wind going through our ears.
We feel wind as a ruling element when we listen to Free From Real, that’s why we decided to make a video about a boy looking for wind.
Looking for a change, through fields past bridges and long walks where he finally ends up finding himself.
Himself as an older man.
