Mantra Release Video For New Single 'Russian Roulette'
London’s Mantra are weeks away from releasing their gargantuan debut album 'Dreamland'. It drops on 15th February via Dine Alone Records (Alexisonfire, City and Colour, The Dirty Nil), and to anticipate the occasion the alternative trio have released new single and video 'Russian Roulette' today. Sinister, moody verses, are juxtaposed by soaring, cathartic choruses, capturing Mantra’s ability to replicate inner turmoil in musical form. "'Russian Roulette' almost didn't make it on to the album until our producer, Tom Dalgety, picked it as one of his favourites”, explains vocalist and guitarist Simon Stark, “It was the first songs we recorded for 'Dreamland' and is about someone who's rolling the dice one too many times. The video is heavily inspired by Twin Peaks, so we wanted a non-linear narrative with an ambiguous ending. There are a couple of easter eggs in there too that will hopefully leave people wanting to watch it again".
