“I’ve fallen under someone’s spell several times in my life,” says MTV’s out fraternity brother Davis Mallory from his Nashville home. “From those early high school crushes to my first boyfriend who I dated on The Real World.”
His latest single, “Under Your Spell”, was inspired by his most recent ex, a man he was on-and-off with since 2014. It was written during the early stages of the relationship when everything was warm and tingly and their future seemed bright. “I’m a Leo, so when I fall for someone, I envision it lasting forever,” he admits.
The excitement is reflected in the song’s music video, directed by Derrick Lipschitz and filmed at the DCXV “Heiroglitches” mural by Nashville artist Adrien Saporiti. Starring Ashley Saggs and William Harris III as the joyously unrestrained couple in love, the video depicts the story of a relationship taking off. In the mist of their wild exuberance, it cuts to a dreamy-eyed Davis Mallory, crooning how “in this little world of ours, you are the sun the stars”.
“Under Your Spell” is the first single from Davis Mallory’s upcoming LOUD album, scheduled to be released April 25, 2017. It’s available on iTunes.
