Nicholas James Mallins, formerly the lead singer of The Mutineers, goes solo with his forthcoming debut single 'If I Were King', which is scheduled to be released on March 9th 2015. He unveils a stunning visual for the track which was filmed in Iceland over a month.
The video, directed by Dan Huiting, is a timelapse film of Icelandic sunsets against snow-capped mountains, of oceanic movements under azure skies and stunning waterfalls against rocky cliffs as the plantlife around them changes colour. We also see unique icy tides, steaming hot springs and gleaming ice caves. It's a stunning montage for an equally beautiful song. The frantic bass may lend well to club atmosphere, but the light piano and chiming synths pull off a dreamy pop number. When the vocals come in, there's an unmistakeable indie twang there, but it remains a delicate layer of the song and harmonises wonderfully with the general melodic tone.
Mallins' new single, which he recorded with producer Martin King at EVE studios, will feature in his upcoming triptych collection entitled 'Le Rebutant'. He will be spreading the word around with a set of unusual European shows in the Summer, which will kick off in Vienna, Austria.
