Last month Psychic Twin – the dreamy synth-pop solo project of songwriter and producer Erin Fein – dropped her new single “Water Meets Land” and today she is revealing the official video.  The clip, directed by Adam Weinberg, debuted via Flood Magazine and Psychic Twin told them, “inspired by surrealist cinema, the colors and aesthetics speak very strongly to the visual world in which Psychic Twin exists for me.” She further notes  “it is an expression of self inflicted pain and the eventual and essential acceptance, love and forgiveness I was able to find for myself in order to heal.

I have gone back and forth what feels like 1,000 times on whether I should be more specific when discussing what this video is actually about. No one would really be able to discern the underlying meaning if I don’t speak about it, and that is why I realize, in this case, that I have to. I feel if i don’t, it undermines what the purpose of this song and these visuals really were for me. A platform to process and discuss what it’s like to survive sexual assault. I, like so many people, endured a really difficult situation in my former place of work and it took me many years to talk about it. It was only with the strength of the other women affected that I was able to confront it at all. This video, for me, is a visual depiction of the process of confronting that internal pain and forgiving myself for what I thought i was my fault. Learning to love myself again and to care for myself the way one needs to, to survive what it feels like to be violated like that. To anyone who may read this, I want you to know you’re not alone and you can contact me personally, if you want advice on how to proceed if you’ve been in a similar situation.”
