Annachristie Sapphire‘s bio reads that she “has a soulful huskiness and power that could break glass.” After watching the video for her new single Cut the Line we think you’ll agree with every word from that bio. Taken from her upcoming LP “Desert Car” Cut the Line is a powerful and potent track, she uses 1950’s backing style vocals introduce a nostalgic connection to the listener while also adding a noirish edge (David Lynch would be all over it)…Vocally, she’s totally captivating.
She shared the following on the video for Cut the Line which is also our Song of the Day:
“This video is a fine example of what can be done with a very low budget, and a creative mind! The simplicity of shots against an ancient Brooklyn brick wall in comparison to explosive bits of color, somehow seems to completely capture the essence of the lyrics:) Artist helping artist make art is one of the most beautiful, non-egotistical thing I can think of:)
Thank you Evan Cutler Wattles / silent face productions for your imagination and friendship!”
Her compelling songwriting style lends itself to an emotionally evocative experience for her listeners time and time again. Annachristie explores new measures of Folk and Americana by marrying the genres with styles more grunge, dreamlike, and enduring- reminiscent to the rawness brought to light by the music rebels of the 90’s. With this, Annachristie Sapphire welcomes a sense of nostalgia even for those who might be hearing her music for the first time.
