Ambassadors Release "Unconsolable" Video Featuring Zosia Mamet From Girls || Debut LP 'Litost' Out Now
New York band Ambassasdors announce the release of a new video for their single "Unconsolable". Directed by Gabriel Stanley, the video features Girls / Mad Men star Zosia Mamet as a deranged killer. "Unconsolable" is the latest single from Ambassadors debut LP Litost out now.
On making the video for "Unconsolable":
Zosia Mamet (Girls):
"I'd never shot a music video before and this was a perfect introduction. I couldn't have had more fun. Everyone was a joy and a pleasure to work with. Playing a crazy murderess, not a bad way to spend an evening. Ps love the song. A favorite on my running mix."
Sam Harris (Ambassadors):
"I wanted the video to walk the line between the fantastical and the obscene in a very specific way. Theres an innocent curiosity to the way Zosia's character interacts with all those spectral, fairy-like white lines that almost boarders on cute. Then, she flips the fuckin' script on us (the viewer) and uses them to brutally kill me. It's almost comical the way it happens. I love that feeling, when you don't quite know whether to be disgusted or elated."
Gabriel Stanley (Director):
"Ambassadors' music and subsequent album art all reflect a very simple, elegant, and dark kind of symmetry of motion. I really wanted to capture that while establishing an interesting story with a violent twist."
