Folk-pop twin duo Fionn is premiering the video for "Robert," a swelling tale first love and the radical heartbreak that comes with it, exclusively Billboard today (Aug. 14).
Sisters Alanna and Brianne Finn-Morris may only be nineteen, but their achingly honest lyrics and well-balanced harmonies are undeniably seasoned, a product singing together most their lives.
On “Robert,” their voices intertwine in the cosmic fusion twin telepathy, backed by lush acoustic arrangements and an old world Celtic sound.
"‘Robert' is an honest and personal portrayal my first love. It was a painful experience," Brianne tells Billboard. “I knew from the beginning the relationship it wouldn’t last, due to distance and our very different paths.”
The video begins as the young romance blooms — through daytime fog and moonlit kisses, on a sunset beach, and course, feeding each other sushi. But the dream evaporates mid-song as Brianne crashes from the heartbreak love’s end.
"Alanna and I wanted the video to portray the haunting feeling after a breakup, everything is a reminder that person, and it feels like you have woken from an unforgettable dream, back into a bleak existence," Brianne adds.
