Matoma Shares New Music Video for “Bruised Not Broken” featuring MNEK & Kiana Ledé
- Norwegian DJ Matoma, British singer-songwriter MNEK and American singer-songwriter Kiana Ledé have shared a new music video for “Bruised Not Broken”.
Directed by Jeff Desom and Carlos Lopez Estrada. The song was released last month.
“This is by far the best video I’ve ever done and also the most fun to shoot!” Matoma said in a statement. “It connects so much with the idea of the song and Carlos and Jeff are such geniuses for making it come to life in such a unique and special way!”
Jeff Desom and Carlos Lopez Estrada said, “The song does a wonderful job of telling a story of overcoming great hardship while never losing sight of hope. We wanted to stay in that spirit while creating something totally unexpected.” They continued, “The idea was inspired by the line ‘I put myself back together’ but hearing the track you wouldn’t necessarily think of a butcher shop filled with human parts that put themselves back together. The challenge was to keep it light-hearted and fun despite a pretty grim premise. Realism was the enemy.”
- "Matoma is such a lovely and talented person," says MNEK. "I really enjoyed the process of working on this song with him and Kiana sounds amazing, such a fan of her voice. I can't wait for everyone to hear what we've done together!"
Kiana Ledé says, "Bruised Not Broken" spoke to me because late last year I had a lot of dark s happen which in turn provoked a lot of dark thoughts and moments. So, having recently come out of depression, I see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know how scary that s can get and how never-ending it seems to be, and while those things that happened, still affect me, I have learned to live with them and not drown in them anymore. It really does get better."
Matoma is currently on a wide-ranging live tour, including headline shows and festival performances as Chicago, IL's Lollapalooza on August 2nd.
