To those of us who fell in love with his song “Stupid” and the amazing music video, Australian pop singer-songwriter Brendan Maclean still feels like our little secret. But he’s on the verge of crossing over, after a role in Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby and his new song “Winner.”
The track is just as infectious as his last single with an equally hypnotic video. A glitter-covered Maclean runs a lap while smearing his makeup and taking his clothes off — but it’s all played backwards. So sit back and watch him perform in reverse while listening to this new tune and wondering when American listeners are going to catch on.
