After weeks of teasing, Måneskin have released the official music video for “MAMMAMIA”.

The video is built around an amusing premise: Band members Victoria De Angelis, Thomas Raggi and Ethan Torchio all fantasise about killing frontman Damiano David because he’s so annoying.

The video, which dovetails nicely with upcoming Halloween celebrations, shows him murdered in three different ways. Ethan plunges his head into the toilet (after Damiano starts urinating into a loo while Ethan is doing his business) and Victoria stabs him repeatedly after he butts in on her getting physical with another woman.

The music video is directed by Spanish film director Rei Nadal. She’s directed fashion films for brands including Burberry, Nike x OFF-WHITE, as well as music videos for Hercules and Love Affair, Mikky Ekko and Primal Scream.

The three-minute song is a full-frontal burst of libido, layered over pulsating rhythm and guitar strums. Damiano’s smoky vocal carries some extra smoke and plenty of swagger.

The song starts with Damiano stuck in a police car and being treated like he “did something criminal,” just moments after he says he feels “the heat” along with “the beat” (of the drums).

In the chorus, his figurative release, he begs someone “to spit your love on me” while explaining he’s on his knees. He’ll keep the entire affair (or exploration or transaction, depending on your take) a secret so long as he can “get a taste.” Boundaries are here to be pushed: “Tell me your limit and we’ll cross the line again.”

What do you think of “MAMMAMIA”? Are you feeling the band’s charisma and charm as much as we are? Let us know in the comments box below.

if I express my own opinion I’m sure it will be down-voted so I’d rather stay in silent but I know they won ESC because of their great song it just their after effect seem questionable and risky…..

Trash. I am glad a Eurovision and non-American/British band is making a big success but their post Eurovision image and music is fabricated and forced trash

Love both the song and the video. It’s a fun song, talking about the criticism they had to deal with, and the fun cheesiness of the over the top violence of the video somehow meshes and adds great tension with the song.

Måneskin are special. They do what they want with their art. I’m sure next will be different. Damiano will change directions

I really fell in love with their music and i still like them – but it seems that they veered in one specific direction and it’s kinda disappointing. Especially when their other music is very artistic and emotional, these lyrics are just trashy and gross in comparison…

I can see how Mammamia and I wanna be your slave aren’t everybody’s cup of tea. I for one like their new style as well as their older stuff.
If it’s any consolation to you a lot of bands have different “eras” where they go for a certain type of sound/style/aesthetic for an album or two and then change it up and do something different.

I’m quite appalled by this new offering. Not only the song is almost a carbon copy of the one just before it. The great video is tainted by unnecessary violence. Provoking your audience song after song would get old and boring soon enough.

The video is great – though not everyone’s cup of tea, but they seem to be provocative only for the sake of being provocative. Besides, they haven’t showed anything new to the public as this sounds like a IWBYS rip-off, I think I’m a bit worried about them

The idea of band members killing the vocalist reminds me of Rammstein’s video clip for Haifisch

The video is creative ….but the song is only mediocre (not their best work). I hope their next album will be as good as ‘Teatro d’ira – Vol. I’ ….maybe they made the song ‘Mammamia’ because they had success in the USA with ‘I wanna be your slave’ which is in the same style as Mammamia.

Original clip, it fits perfectly with halloween time but it’s not for all public. Still not a big fan of their sound but I note and respect the work well done.

I feel like they’re just trying to be provocative.m, to get reaction. No real meaning behind anything. Their previous work was way better in my opinion.

Smart, provocative video. The song is mediocre though. They need to bring something new and change their music. Bring on a new ballad.

Is it just me or are they overdoing it a bit lol? Like they just want to provoke for the sake of provocation only and without that big of a message or artistic feel anymore. Maybe they need to go in a different direction in their next song so as to diversify things a bit. Still loving them a lot though and I think they are the best ESC winners in a veeeery long time

Nevertheless I like the concept of the video clip and the message of the song itself. Maybe the execution needed to be a bit different though.
