MAGNET Exclusive: Premiere Of Amistat’s “Still Believe” Video

The gist of Amistat’s therapeutic musical philosophy is hardly revelatory, but it is unabashedly sincere. Amistat is lead by well-traveled, German-born twins Josef and Jan Prasil, and the group’s well-honed alt-folk sound conveys a message of healing initially inspired by their father’s brush with death in a motorcycle accident. It also helps that the brothers can carry a tune, as their preternatural harmonies supply much-needed emotional heft when the music is in danger of becoming a bit too precious.

Featuring footage of the band on tour, “Still Believe” is a heartfelt teaser from Amistat’s a moment in the sun EP, out March 8 via Nettwerk. The group is hoping to capitalize on the viral momentum of its recent cover of Lord Huron’s “The Night We Met,” which has more than 12 million views on Instagram and close to two million on TikTok.

“‘Still Believe’ speaks of the essence of reciprocity in relationship—and that support flows both ways,” the brothers tell MAGNET. “Sometimes you’re the one helping, and other times you’re the one receiving support.”

We’re proud to premiere the video for Amistat’s “Still Believe.”
