The new track comes from the singer’s second album One Breath and will be available to buy on March 31st.
Anna’s soft, haunting voice mixed with the adventurous use of guitar results in a beautiful distorted piece of art. Piece By Piece is the epitome of unique, displaying what it truly means to be an artist – take a risk and trying something new. The chords are simple but extremely effective as the warped sound of trumpets and repetitive drums tie the track together nicely.
The quirkiness doesn’t stop there, as the video is equally as simplistic but very much modern. Filmed by Mathy & Fran in just one take, we see Anna showcase her exquisite guitar playing skills against a colour-changing wall. The bright colours behind her contrast with the dark sound of the single, but ensures that the attention is solely on the beautiful artist and her musical abilities.
This new video sets up high hopes for what else is to come from her album One Breath, which has attracted much attention and positivity – Q rated it 4 stars, saying ‘beautiful and candid, One Breath proves Anna Calvi has her fragilities. They just happen to be as captivating as her strengths’
Buy the album and have a listen for yourself, or better yet hear it live. Pick a date from Anna’s manic tour across the EU and UK that kicked off earlier this month and ends late March.
