Deeply melodic and danceable, Are You Still Certain? is an emotional appeal for truth and understanding.

Featuring Hamed Sinno from Mashrou’ Leila, the video pitches the cold hand of the law, the spectre of violence and innocence lost, as a timeless ever-present human struggle. Sinno performs against a series of vignettes that illustrate the ego’s blind pursuit of ‘truth’. It was been directed by Joie Iacono and Andy Butler under their Hoarder alias (in collaboration with Robert Fox).

Taken from the latest Hercules & Love Affair album, ‘Are You Still Certain?’ is at once a balm to cultural tensions and a challenge to misconception and prejudice, written by Butler and Mashrou’ Leila with additional vocals by Rouge Mary.

Mashrou’ Leila are rapidly emerging band from Lebanon now receiving international recognition. The loose collective of students who began jamming together in 2008 at the American University of Beirut has gradually focused into an ambitious, fiercely articulate quartet: vocalist/lyricist Hamed Sinno, guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Firas Abou Fakher, violinist Haig Papazian, and drummer Carl Gerges. And the music they make has focused, too, into a charged, atmospheric version of pop that is geographically impossible to place. The lyrics draw on their collective experiences, which the band shares with the youth of the Middle East, and addresses the need for self-expression and a judgment free culture— a notion often stifled in a conservative society. Through their relevant and charged lyrics, their music has resonated with fans all over the globe. CNN has described Mashrou’ Leila as “The voice of their generation” while the Financial Times have called them “The Arab world’s most influential independent band”.

Hercules & Love Affair feat. Mashrou' Leila - Are You Still Certain? - the English lyrics

Hey you,
didn’t you used to know the truth?
how’d that play out for you?
tell me,
since you know the truth,
how’s that working out for you?

Chorus:
Hey you
tell me, are you still certain?
tell me
tell me, are you still certain?

tell me, are you still certain?
tell me, are you still certain?
tell me, are you still certain?
do you still know the truth

Verse 2:
Hey you,
no one knows truth,
how can you judge with such confidence?
tell me,
why have you given yourself licence
to speak with such conviction

Chorus:
Hey you
tell me, are you still certain?
tell me
tell me, are you still certain?

tell me, are you still certain?
tell me, are you still certain?
tell me, are you still certain?
do you still know the truth
