Watch Mutual Benefit’s “Let’s Play / Statue of a Man” Video

Jordan Lee's Mutual Benefit has debuted a new video for "Let's Play / Statue of a Man."

Directed by Stefan Grabrowski, the video was shot over the span of 6 months in and around Boston using mostly analog equipment and some experimental developing techniques.

The resulting images have a frenetic, but also organic quality to them evoking the very personal and soul-searching nature of the song.

As described by Jordan, "I think Stefan really captured the spirit of the song by finding the beauty of rusted train tracks and flooded ponds and mashing it all together into a colorful mess."

Watch the video below:
