“Believe” by Amen Dunes

Amen Dunes (aka the project of New York-based Damon McMahon) released his new album, Freedom, this past spring via Sacred Bones. “Believe,” a song about nostalgia, mortality, the passage of time, and the feminine powers that preside over life, is presented today with a video directed by cinematographer Steven Brahms, who also directed the video for lead single “Miki Dora,” and starring NYC poet and painter Laura Leigh. A powerful piece on family, death, and relationships, Brahms’ video compliments “Believe” as the song “reckons with his mother’s impending mortality. The results—a master class in slow-building, raspily sung astral-folk—are worthy of their weighty subject, as spiritually cleansing as they are emotionally devastating”. Amen Dunes’ North American headline tour kicks off in August. All dates are below.
