Twin Rains: Believe it All

Rising dreampop act Twin Rains prepare for the release of their sophomore album, Unreal City, expected out on November 19th, 2021. Believe it All is the latest single off it, and it arrives paired to a beautiful music video, created in collaboration with director Jon Staav.

I had this idea to do a music video of a street preacher,” says singer Christine Stoesser, who lives in Toronto near Bloor and Dufferin. “I hear them all the time on the corner and thought it made sense with the song.” With the help of cinematographer Victor Cahoj and video editor Samantha D’Alessio, the clip turned out to be a poetic and cinematic piece of local street art which matches perfectly the song's dreamlike mood.

It’s about misinformation, but not necessarily misinformation from the internet, although that’s part of it because it’s unescapable,” Stoesser describes the song. “But I was writing more about the misinformation you feed yourself, in your own head. And how it can become a creed, and you start to believe it all.

The initial plan didn't involve the band to star in the video but that changed eventually. “I loved the idea but was nervous if Christine would be able to pull off the act in front of the thousands of people who cross the corner everyday,” says Twin Rains' Jay Merrow. “She is a shy person with strangers on top of it all, but she pulled it off! It wasn’t until after the shoot that she mentioned she felt embarrassed.
