Music Video of the Day: Brendan Maclean “Free to Love” (2016)

Oh, Brendan Maclean; you gorgeous, magnificent pop darling, you.

On new single “Free to Love”, Maclean has further exuded a vibrancy and energy that has become his trademark as one of the country’s most endearing live performers.

Prior to the release of this tune, we’ve seen Maclean explore darker, shadowy sides of the genre on “Tectonic”, while indulging and giving absolutely no fucks in brilliant fashion on “Hugs Not Drugs (Or Both)”.  All featuring on his fifth independently released EP, the now-iconic funbang1, Maclean has further shown himself to be a pop chameleon the Australian music industry is bloody lucky to have, and is now waking up to.

And it’s about damn time.

The music video for “Free to Love”, produced and directed by Josh Harris, features an awesome cast of talented dancers, with equally as great choreo by Courtney Hale to boot. Maclean himself cuts an awesome figure, central to it all; the falsetto in his range shines as brightly as the sequins on his blazer, while the confidence he exudes is infectious and undeniable.

Watch below and dance your way into this weekend.
