Watch Mini Mansions’ New Video for ‘Any Emotions’ Feat. Colin Hanks
Los Angeles' Mini Mansions are gearing up for the release of their newest LP, 'The Great Pretenders,' and in anticipation of it, they've released a music video for their song 'Any Emotions' (featuring the Beach Boys' Brian Wilson on the track). Check it out below.
The video was directed by Mike Harris and depicts Colin Hanks in a similarly disturbed and squeamish form to when he was cast in the sixth season of Showtime's 'Dexter.'
“One take, black and white: there was something classic about it right off the page," Mini Mansions bassist Zach Dawes explains. "Due to the straightforward nature of it, it wasn't about getting somebody famous as much as it was getting someone great. Colin's name came up as we were brainstorming. He had caught our set opening for the Arctic Monkeys last year and everybody agreed he would be perfect. We are thrilled to have him involved in this and his performance is about as perfect as Cinderella's foot.”
Dawes also reflects on working with Wilson on the track: "[It's] that rare moment occurred where the idealized version of something becomes a reality and Brian Wilson served up an endless helping of apple pie a la mode. We are forever grateful for his presence, genius, and generosity."
The digital single for 'Any Emotions' is currently available. 'The Great Pretenders' is due out March 24 via T Bone Burnett’s Electromagnetic Recordings/Capitol Records.
