Yesterday, Beats1 premiered the new track from the forthcoming Mattiel album Satis Factory. “Je Ne Me Connais Pas” is the second song to be released from the June 14th full length. Satis Factory is the second album from Atlanta-based band, fronted by enigmatic singer Mattiel Brown. The single comes with an impressive Jason Travis-directed video, in which Mattiel creates an unsavory male antihero. Tune in to NBC’s Last Call tonight at 1:35/12:35c to catch a performance from Mattiel, taped at LA’s Teragram Ballroom.
The new single comes with an impressive Jason Travis-directed video, in which Mattiel creates an unsavory male antihero. Refinery 29 say the tone of the song “…is rather tongue-in-cheek – purposefully funny and a big, self-aware wink. But despite its seemingly amusing nature, it also reveals how people, more often than not, contain multitudes.” Says, Mattiel: “There’s a line where I say “I’m a lone star man, I’m a dead ringer.”..The concept for the video stems from this – and it also stems from the dualities of my personality. But it’s absolutely exaggerated and lighthearted. We had a blast making it – and it was fun to freak myself out in the mirror. I genuinely felt different in drag, and I had a great time exploring this dirtbag character I conjured up. I learned that manspreading is a choice, and facial hair is really itchy. And I felt absolutely disgusting by the time we wrapped the shoot, so it was very much an immersive experience.“
