Listen to This Haunting Single About Coping with Sexual Assault


Earlier this week, New York band Spirit Twin released a video for their single "Speak About," which addresses sexual abuse and how victims work through and process their experiences. The duo addresses the difficulty of victims to come forward and be up front about their assaults, with the dreamy, haunting music underpinning refrains of "It's time to speak about it" playing against refrains of "We will never speak about what happened tonight."

"This song is about my own personal experiences with sexual abuse. It's a subject matter women in our culture are pressured to stay quiet about and keep to themselves, along with other forms of gender based violence and abuse," the band explained in a statement about the video, The creation of this song and video not only helped me work through my own issues, but my hope is that it can reach many more in situations similar to me."
