True selves and reality collide in Stonetrotter’s new video for “The Truth Don’t Look the Same to Me and You,” the opening track from the Barrie, Ontario outfit’s eponymous LP.
The video, created by Dave Murray of Half Acre Films, shows a woman seemingly trapped in room where happier scenes of her play in the background. It’s almost unnerving when she spends a large portion of the video making complete eye contact with the camera, and also the audience. The song, meanwhile, builds a wall of guitars with Wintersleep-esque vocals and a dash of folk with the band’s great vocal harmonies.
As Murray explains the video: “I felt the song, for me, was about perception. I wanted to explore the idea of how a person shows them self to the world, and the true person they conceal inside.”
