In a moment of sweet synchronicity with the upcoming Season 2 premiere of Bates Motel, award-winning singer/songwriter Melinda Ortner has followed up the hit music video for her single “Heartbeats” with a stylish and sensual ode to Alfred Hitchcock's classic Psycho, recreating the look and feel in her latest clip “One More Day.” The clip even features a clever gender reversal of the film's most memorable scene... and that's not the only twist.
Directed by Donlee Brussel & Max Meehan (whose recent music video credits include Kurtis Blow Jr's "Californication") and featuring color treatment by Tom Poole (Drive, Oldboy, The Place Beyond the Pines, Twelve Years a Slave and the just-released Non-Stop), the film comes with an impressive cinema pedigree; sharp-eyed fans may also recognize some of the locations used in the psycho-thriller Identity.
Ortner's debut full-length album I Wanna Be OK is available now, and if you like what you've heard & seen here, visit her Soundcloud page, where you can download the full track “One More Day” for free. Be sure to like her on Facebook for more news on upcoming shows, releases and other events.
