Today, the Atlanta-based producer TWINS (AKA Matt Weiner) shares the video for the fourth single from his forthcoming debut record, That Which Is Not Said, out this Friday, May 4th via 2MR. The video, which was directed by Weiner and Waithira Gatei, is a highly affected, 80’s-tinged montage for “Open Up,” a visual metaphor for what Weiner calls “…being lost in the forest of your emotions.”

Speaking on the clip, Weiner says “The video for ‘Open Up’ started with a very vague idea and it quickly took shape once the parallels became apparent between the imagery we captured and the song’s lyrical themes of being lost in the forest of your emotions, trying to avoid the destructive behavior you know yourself to be capable of if your demons catch you, realizing that you cannot run from your problems and that they have to be faced head on – it’s hard to open up until you have reached a point of clarity. Joining the bodies dancing in the dark until you find the light that you need.
