Mattiel Brown on the video for “Keep The Change:”

“The video was co-directed by Matthew Addington and myself. I had about four weeks to call him up, plan everything, find a location that would give us permission to film, source props. It was crazy, but a lot of fun. We brought in this amazing DP, Alan Sabir, from Calgary. He freehanded a lot of the performance shots and our script was pretty loose. This gigantic cement factory outside of Atlanta gave us free reign over the entire facility for two days – it kinda felt like running around inside a video game with all the tunnels, catwalks and passageways. And they had this amazing mint-green control room that hasn’t been changed since the early 60’s…It was a dream.”

Having initially met in the Atlanta music scene in 2014, the process of recording Satis Factory was built upon the success of Swilley and Mattiel Brown’s time working together on their debut album. It’s a team that just works. “Jonah is a great songwriter and he’ll put a structure together and send it to me through an email, and then I’ll listen to it pretty much right away,” Mattiel explains. “And then we’ll restructure it if we need to and I’ll write a melody and lyrics to it and eventually record it.” Where the first record was confident, this second release is even more so. This is probably down to the chemistry between them; they seem in awe of each other. “Some of Mattiel’s best lyrical writing is effortless,” Jonah says. “She’s thoughtful with what she wants to say as an artist, but also understands pop sensibilities.”
