MUTUAL BENEFIT SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR ‘ADVANCED FALCONRY’ o(below)

UK LIVE DATE ANNOUNCED: 4TH MARCH AT ST. JOHN’S CHURCH, LONDON

LOVE’S CRUSHING DIAMOND RELEASED 13TH JANUARY IN THE UK / EU ON OTHER MUSIC RECORDING CO.

“the album carries a haunting power that couldn’t help but find a larger audience.” – The New York Times’ T Magazine online

Mutual Benefit, the project of Jordan Lee’s sometimes one-man-band, sometimes sprawling collective, is set to their debut album. The powerful and heartfelt Love’s Crushing Diamond is due in UK shops on 13th January via Other Music Recording Co. After sharing various album tracks that gave listeners a glimpse into the lucid, sonorous world of Lee and his chosen collaborators, he now presents the video for ‘Advanced Falconry’, created by BANGS and directed by Allie Avital Tsypin.

Watch the ‘Advanced Falconry’ video

“Advanced Falconry immediately evoked a feeling of nostalgia and sentimentality, and I was looking for a playful and compelling way to illustrate that. I had just watched Thomas Vinterburg’s ‘The Celebration’ and that was definitely a huge inspiration.  I wanted to take a similar cinematic narrative of a dysfunctional family and explore it in the context of a single moment.  It was an interesting challenge to try and express the same psychological complexities and nuances of a film within the limitations of the music video format.” – Allie Avital Tsypin

Mutual Benefit have also added a week of European dates to their tour schedule for next year, including a London show at St. John’s Church on 4th March. The live band will feature Jordan (guitar, synths, vocals), his sister, Whitney Lee (vocals, synth), plus a bassist, guitarist and percussionist/vocalist.
