Twin brothers of Jan and Josef Prasil hailing from Germany are a duo of very talented indie folksters who created Amistat. They released their new single, The Coward (released Nov 10) which you can watch the music video below, and just announced an east coast Australian tour throughout December.

Josef says, The Coward is about knowing who you are deep inside but not being able to let it out.  People are very fast with making assumptions and judging you based on what you look like but little do they know about what’s inside of the person.”     

The video encompasses so much in such a simple yet effective format. The viewer watches one man struggle with his sense of identity and purpose, as a pivotal moment in his life plays itself out backwards. The grey, stormy palette, the storyline that is left to the audience to interpret – it all lends itself to a melancholy, important reflection of the theme of this track. Josef enthuses, “Jan and I love the concept of ‘one-shot’ videos, where the whole film clip you see is done in a single take…It’s impossible really, trying to get it in one take but we always like a challenge!  We started with that concept about two years ago and decided to keep it as sort of a trademark of the band.  For this clip, we came up with a vision of a soldier who is being denied going to battle, even though he wanted to defend his loved ones, and show his courage and commitment.”
