Trans-Atlantic dark music duo, Johnathan|Christian, have released their new single, “Résistance, Mon Amie”. “The song is dedicated to advocating for the rights of the LGBTQ+ community”, so the band says. The duo will donate the proceeds of the 3-track single to The Trevor Project, an American nonprofit organization that focuses on suicide prevention.

Written and composed by Christian and Johnathan, “Résistance Mon Amie” was collaboratively produced by Johnathan and Tony Lewis in Redbank, New Jersey.

Speaking about the new single, Johnathan states: “This past summer was appalling for the gay community globally. EVERYONE has the right to be free! What right do the most hypocritical sinners of all think they THEY have the right to judge anyone, invoking their ‘godliness’, while spewing their hatred? In a world marred by hate crimes and discrimination, music’s universal language and the storytelling capacity of music videos become vital tools to inspire change, fostering empathy and hope.”

The single includes two remixes of the title song, the “Neon Nights Mix” by Lee Meadows as well as an official Martin Atkins (Public Image Ltd, Ministry, Nine Inch Nails, Pigface, Killing Joke) mix.

The video for the single was produced by Nick van Dyk with Purple Tree studio and tries to address the struggle while offering encouragement: “In the face of ongoing violence against the LGBTQ+ community, there’s a glimmer of hope through the power of music and visuals. Creating specific visuals for the “Resistance” track is a fantastic way to unite and amplify the LGBTQ+ movement’s message, redirecting energy away from violence.”
