NEWS: Mutual Benefit unveils video for ‘Getting Gone’

Jordan Lee, better known as folk artist Mutual Benefit, released his album Skip a Sinking Stone earlier in the year and one of its highlights, ‘Getting Gone,’ now has a new video.  The clip contrasts gritty urban landscapes against natural elements, all framed by the silhouette of Lee in a gorgeously impressionistic manner.

Lee said of the video: “I think of this video as an attempt to visualize some sort of vague nostalgia […]  Where you let time do its thing until what’s left of confusing, distant memories is just a tranquil spot where the rays of the sun are shining from between the leaves in the trees.”  Meanwhile, director Anna Powell added: “This video reveals people’s thoughts and secrets while maintaining their anonymity […]  With Hugh (Sherman Donkin)’s thoughtful and detail-oriented camera work, we were able to depict these stories through a rural narrative.”  Watch below.
