Mellah has released a lush new video, shot at the Barbican Conservatory in London

Mellah has released a lush new video, shot at the Barbican Conservatory in London.

The clip is for the South London multi-instrumentalist's track 'Death Pillage Plunder', and it arrives ahead of his headline show at Corsica Studios on 7th November, plus some support shows with Alaskalaska.

“Death Pillage plunder is about Mauerbauertraurigkeit," he explains. "I promise that’s a real word. I only discovered it after writing the song but its definition pretty much perfectly encapsulates what the song is about. Mauerbauertraurigkeit is the inexplicable urge to push people away, even close friends and family whom you love and who love you and the inability to distinguish between genuine affection and cheap politeness. It’s an incredibly destructive cycle that I have only recently realised I enact.

"The chorus ‘death pillage plunder in the black of my eye’ refers to the part of myself that this isolating pattern seems to come from. The black of my eye being the part of myself that I can’t see but everyone else can, my subconscious or inner child and death pillage plunder being the irrational desire to self-destroy.” says Mellah."

Check out 'Death Pillage Plunder' below.
