Fast-rising global rock group Måneskin has unveiled the highly anticipated new visual for its latest single “Supermodel.” The video release follows recent news of the band securing its second platinum record in the UK with previous hit single “Beggin.”
Filmed in London and directed by Bedroom projects (The 1975) and Ben Chappell (Arctic Monkeys, Nine Inch Nails), the cinematic visual sees the Gucci-styled band cast in their own script for blockbuster single “Supermodel.” Combining classic elements of Tarantino and Hitchcock, the band perfectly captures the song’s fierce mood and playful lyrics as a series of catastrophic events unfold.
Måneskin writes, “We wanted to pay tribute to our favorite ‘90s movies in the ‘Supermodel’ music video. We tried to capture a cinematic vibe about an enigmatic character in the track and we wanted the visual to reflect that. After we came up with the idea, we worked closely with the directors and Ben to recreate frame shots and sequences from our favorite ‘90s films. We had so much fun filming it in London, playing funny scenes that reminded us of a detective B-movie.
Bedroom comments, “The Måneskin video was a project that was inspired by the references of a mixture of ‘90s films like Run Lola Run, Reservoir Dogs, as well as, Hitchcock and a bit of 1950s Hollywood.”
“This video came about after a week of sitting around the pool in LA with the band thumbing through 90s Vogue magazines and talking about our favorite 90s movies. We tried to sneak in as many small references as we could throughout the video,” Ben Chappell adds.
Produced with pop prodigy Max Martin and his team, the band launched the single with a surprise performance at the Eurovision Song Contest.
The California-soaked rock anthem is loosely based on characters they met during their time in LA.
“You want to hang out with this supermodel, but you might get in trouble. It’s like cigarettes: you love them but you know they’re gonna fucking kill you.” the band described in their recent NME Big Read cover interview.
The band will kick off its world tour Loud Kids Tour on October 31 with a sold-out show on its opening night in Seattle, followed by a run of sold-out gigs across North America—including three in Canada, two in New York, Washington, San Francisco, and Atlanta before embarking on their recently expanded European leg in 2023—playing iconic venues including London’s O2 Arena, Accor Arena in Paris and Berlin’s Mercedes Benz Arena.
With a sound that’s at once classic and thoroughly modern, Måneskin is bringing rock’n’roll back on top of the International charts, perfectly mixing it with contemporary tastes. Now co-signed by the likes of Iggy Pop, The Rolling Stones, Mark Ronson and more, Victoria (bass guitar), Damiano (vocals), Thomas (guitar), and Ethan (drums), started their career busking in the streets of Rome in 2015 and, in just a few years, they conquered the world by becoming one of the most popular rock acts of their generation. At the moment the band has over 5 billion streams on all digital platforms. With their brand new single Supermodel, Måneskin continues to assert themselves as one of the most exciting rock bands of our time.
