Overcoats removes the sugarcoat from fairy tales and glosses it with modern hot mess in their new video “I Don’t Believe In Us.” It is a Zen-like pop piece that slowly demolishes the romanticized illusion we often build in our heads – whether it is romance, goals, etc. The video depicts a couple fighting by the pool where the colorful smokes and surrealistic atmosphere create a fairy tale aura. Watch below:

“The song is about disillusionment. It’s about realizing that a fairytale you’ve been believing your whole life is false. It’s about figuring out what to do with that information — how to move forward.” shared Overcoats.

“I Don’t Believe In Us” is from Overcoats’ latest record YOUNG, which was co-produced by Nicolas Vernhes (Daughter, The War On Drugs), Autre Ne Veut, and Myles Avery.
