Night Argent recently announced their highly anticipated sophomore EP, The Fear, set for release July 14, 2017 with Outerloop Records and today, the band is sharing the music video for their newest single, "Mannequin." The mesmerizing music video was produced by the band themselves along with the help of Justin Frick and can be seen below!
"'Mannequin' is currently our favorite track on this record. The production, and the big power ballad vibe, feels a little reminiscent of our song 'Kamikaze' to us, which was the track off of our debut EP that was our favorite to play live. The initial lyrics and concept for 'Mannequin' came to me while showering in the hotel room prior to an all day co-writing session we had in Los Angeles. I just kept thinking about the similarities between someone who feels like they've lost everything of importance to them, everything that made them who they are, and a mannequin. When someone or something has taken and left with such a big part of you, you no longer feel like yourself, you feel like an empty shell, whose only purpose left in life is to be a filler for your clothes. Honestly, I wasn't sure how the idea would play, and I expected it to get shot down when I pitched it to the group, so when they took it and ran with it, helping mold it into what is now the first track off of The Fear, I was stoked." - Chase Manhattan
