Here at PTW we’re very pleased to be able to premiere Allison Forbes‘ brand new video for ‘Pieces Of Silver’, the second of her 2021 singles and hot on the heels of last year’s excellent Bonedigger album.
“No matter how dark the darkness gets, there will always be the stars.”
There’s a bristling energy and exuberance in the track as Allison sings of the awe and allure of the night sky. With a suitably cinematic and cosmic video clip, the song, which has been described as part Appalachian mountains, part remote Irish countryside and part backroads Australia, celebrates hope and optimism with a suitably upbeat country and folk sound.
Drums stomp and kick up red dust beneath the desert sky as guitars, fiddle and banjo send notes into the air like sparks and embers from a campfire. It’s bluegrass music but it also has a gothic bluesy, soulful quality courtesy of Allison’s rich and resonant voice, enhanced by the production approach of Matt Fell.
‘Pieces Of Silver’ is anther gem that continues Allison’s golden run of releases.
