Darkwave trio Johnathan|Christian releases new video & single'Every Day It Rains'

Transatlantic darkwave act Johnathan/Christian (Johnathan Mooney and Christian Granquist) have released their new single, “Every Day it Rains”, featuring lead vocals shared jointly by lead singer Christian Granquist and North Wales recording artist Marianne Holland.

“Every Day it Rains” was an original idea by Johnathan Mooney about a family member waiting for a loved one who never came home from a war. However, the original idea changed completely with the start of the global pandemic followed by tragic murders that resulted in social unrest and protests.

Singer Christian says: “I wrote lyrics just coming home from traveling in Europe when the lockdowns started. (At the same time, my stepfather died). I started thinking: who am I if I don’t interact with other people? Who am I without my children, my friends, my wife, my colleagues? We all had our personal hell. And for some people, there’s no escaping the rain.”

“The world has become entirely too disheartening,” adds composer Johnathan. “We’re all seeing the same scenes depicted in real time and it’s wearing us all down. I wish the video had a happy ending but I believe real change is coming and that’s something we can all look forward to.”
