Americana soul/rock trio The Dawn Brothers takes us into the waters of corruption in their new video “Holy Water.” Contrary to its title, the song shuffles through themes of corruption and greed whereas the video sends a similar subliminal message. Despite the heavy topics, “Holy Water” also melodically disguises itself with its upbeat riffs and glinting guitar strings that keeps you hanging up in the air. Stream below:

In regards to the single, bassist/singer Levi Vis commented “‘Holy Water is the first release of our second album we’re currently working on. Where Stayin’ Out Late mainly represents good times, Holy Water contradicts with depth and sincerity; we’re talking money, corruption, betrayal and greed. The creators of the video sublimely translated the latter to an underwater metaphor with aquatic creatures shaped as eager hands. It is a fish eat fish world where music and appearance illustrate a blissful world but in the meantime…’”

“Holy Water” is the follow up of their latest album Stayin’ Out Late, which was released back in March 2017 and has received critical acclaim from the media.
