Los Angeles rock band War Twins speak the truth in their new music video “Right or Wrong.” No one quite fits correctly in the shoes of a warrior. No one understands what it’s like to live as a true survivor. Yet, when you listen to the duo’s new track and watch the video, you’ll understand the demons the lead singer has had to grapple with.
The duo, featuring Gaetana and James Grey, known for their grunge aesthetic on and off stage, communicate passion for rock and roll. Their music is vulnerable. Every lyric is sung with inflection, with intent. The vocal melodies are sustained, quivering in despair. You can hear Gaetana’s words, spoken with honesty and emanating with an aura of confidence that she’s crafted a song capturing her inner being.
As any great artist does, lead singer Gaetana untangles mysteries, as she shares her courageous story, the trauma of sexual abuse. Trauma is no joke, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t hope. Vulnerable lyrics such as, “We can change perspectives. I can tell you lies; we can play pretend if you like,” evoke an array of emotions in the listener. You wonder which perspective is lost and which direction of thought it is that the lead singer, Gaetana, really wants; she definitely wants to be heard.
