MANTRA - IMMY OWUSU

PREMIERE: Immy Owusu Contends with Darkness and Death in ‘Mantra’ Music Video

The longer Owusu spent in the bush, the better he became at allaying his fears. “My home was on the other side of this darkness, the fairy lights in my caravan twinkling through the trees in the distance.” 

Reilly Archer-Whelan directed the ‘Mantra’ music video with help from production designer Garth Ernstzen and DOP Scott Pope. The clip was filmed on Spring Creek in Torquay, VIC. “The music video has a multicultural and magical aesthetic that was heavily borrowed from the set up of my caravan,” Owusu said.  Tarot cards feature prominently in the video, a nod to Owusu’s fascination with the card deck while writing the song. “The three cards – Death, The Hanged Man and The World – appear as characters throughout the video and are each symbolic of transformation in their own way,” he said.
