Mousey Shares Cinematic Clip For 'My Hands Are Made Of Glass'

From her forthcoming sophomore album My Friends, Ōtautahi songwriter Mousey reveals the moving video for the LP's second single 'My Hands Are Made Of Glass'. Made with support from NZ On Air, the story was written by songwriter Sarena Close herself and co-directed with Martin Sagadin, unfurling the experience of a girl finding refuge behind the locked door of a tiny bathroom. Young actor Poppy Washington solemnly sings along to 'My Hands Are Made Of Glass', giving the song new meaning with lyrics like "I struggle to be nice and I'll just bite you" coming from the mouth of a stern-faced child. Filmmaker Sagadin dives into the process of creating the video, which you can watch below...

"The video aimed to combine a very naturalistic and real feeling of a sheltering child with a kind of theatrical delivery. Everything depended on Poppy’s performance and we were blown away as soon as she started singing along to the song. There is a sadness and an implied intensity that speaks true to Sarena’s experience. I think a lot of people growing up in rough circumstances are seeking refuge on the cold tiles of their home bathrooms."

Mousey's sophomore album 'My Friends' is out Friday 11th March via Native Tongue Music Publishing.
