The band said, “As the official visual to kick off the YOUTH//3 album cycle, we had such a good time filming MANTRA. We wanted to create something bold and stark: a visual that strongly represented the duality that the song itself speaks about, and we're so excited to finally share it with you.”
Also, lead vocal Joshua Perna told Affinity Magazine about the song in an interview, “I’m big on introspection and retrospection. I think MANTRA was written as a way of criticizing myself for patterns I was seeing in my own behavior: over-idealizing people, places, and things, putting a lot of faith into concepts and ideas, and MANTRA is written as a criticism of that sort of mentality.”
