Liza Anne #3 - 1,000 Years

Facebook /

Liza Anne has quietly come to Europe, I only found out through this video, a live recording of her track "1,000 Years" (nothing to do with that song). Her album The Colder Months became one of my early year favourites after I became smitten with its breathtaking title-track, an atmospheric beauty that slowly swells around widescreen guitars and softly emotive vocals, it sets the tone for the entire record.

This stripped back version of "1,000 Years" sees Liza joined by Paris based Josh Savage, the track is an understated, intimate and wholly gorgeous number with barely there acoustic plucks and plaintive piano chords placing the emphasis and the pair's words and voices, both haunting and delicate, this is a heart-melting video, make sure you give it a watch below.

Annoyingly (for me), her only London date penned so far is this Sunday, June 1st at a Communion Music at Notting Hill Arts Club.

I've included the album version below too. The Colder Months is available here.
