Melbourne musician Benny Morrell is preparing to release the video for his debut single, Sidepiece, and it's accompanied by a hilarious visual featuring actors Anne McCaffery and Jony Berry. The clip shows off Benny's acting chops, and we're stoked to be premiering it right now!
Sidepiece's visual follows Benny trying to work out how to deal with a love triangle - because he's the odd one out. To win Anne over, he gets to work doing a range of tasks around her house. You'll have to watch until the end to see how everything turns out.
The video sees Benny in a range of roles - playing a bellboy, pool cleaner, waiter and many more. Directed by Rob La Terra, it's a great introduction to Benny's charm, and you'll find yourself bopping along to the track the whole way through.
Sidepiece sees Benny combining elements of hip-hop, funk and house music, and it's a track that'll get you moving. If you like artists like Mac Miller and Anderson .Paak, then you'll dig Benny Morrell's tunes. It's a track about making sure you know your self-worth, even when things might be telling you to give up.
Speaking about the video, Benny says he's stoked with how it all came out. "The entire concept felt funny to begin with, so when I’m in the bed with them or being a pool boy, it just felt ridiculous in the best way.
"I knew we were doing something different, and in a landscape where a lot of videos and releases can sound derivative and similar, my favourite part was focusing on the uniqueness of the project and knowing full well it was going to shine through.”
Check out the video for Sidepiece above. There's a lot more music to come from Benny in 2021, and we can't wait to see what he gets up to in his next video. If you're ever stuck in a love triangle, Benny's got some tips to help you out.
