Mini Mansions unveil short film from UK tour starring Alex Turner – exclusive

Clip filmed during LA band's gig at London venue The Lexington last month

Mini Mansions have unveiled a short film from their recent UK tour starring Arctic Monkeys‘ Alex Turner.

The footage was filmed during the LA band’s gig at London venue the Lexington last month (January 19). “Our first show in London was at the Camden Barfly and the crowd was beyond anything we’d had, at that point in our headlining shows in the states,” the band say in the video. “There were more kids singing along to our songs, so to come back is an exciting feeling.”

The video also features footage of Alex Turner’s cameo appearance during the gig. Turner performed a verse from track ‘Vertigo’, which features on Mini Mansion’s forthcoming second album ‘The Great Pretenders’.
