I remember the first time I heard "Serpents" by Sharon Van Etten. Though I'd heard individual elements of her music in other acts before, I'd never heard it all in one place: the churning, dark folk rock paired with her piercingly beautiful voice and sinuous lyricism and delivery. And that sort of startling contrast was my experience with hearing Brooke Annibale
for the first time.
We have the exclusive premiere of the Pittsburgh-based singer-songwriter's video for "Alright," and it is stunning. Annibale's voice is a potent instrument hitting a gorgeous alto which underlines the quiet desperation and hints of hope that run throughout the track. And the meditative strumming of her guitar works its way as a perfect counterpoint to the tale she spins.
Brooke Annibale's latest record, The Simple Fear
, is 10/2.
