The premise of Justin Serrao’s latest video for the track ‘Raining in my Soul’ is simple – Serrao performs his poignant track while images of lost loved ones sent in by fans roll across the screen. The track is backed by an equally simple guitar accompaniment. Yet it is this simplicity that makes the track so emotional and effective.
Inspired by the loss of his own aunt, ‘Raining in my Soul’ is stirring and it clearly carries much personal weight for the singer. “It’s [a] really close song to me and I was hesitant to release it. Further I had this idea of getting the fans involved and sharing the creative process with them by asking them to send pictures of their loved ones that they have lost and they would be featured in the video. I was scared to ask at first, however the response has been amazing!” says Serrao.
Lyrically, the track explores what happens after death, and how those who remain behind are affected by the passing of a loved one, making the track’s theme a universal one. According to Serrao, the lyrics are very direct and explain in a straightforward manner how he feels about this event in his life. Watch the video below.
