Aisha Burns, violinist and sometimes vocalist for orchestral indie rock outfit Balmorhea, has been having a fantastic year since dropping her solo debut ‘Life in the Midwater’ to high acclaim earlier this year. Yesterday she unveiled the video for the album’s lead track ‘Sold,’ a quiet meditation on love and loss. The video finds Burns listlessly roaming solo across landscapes of varying textures, her voice shifting effortlessly between a haunting falsetto and a wrenching twang.
Burns plays down at Holy Mountain tonight on a bill that also includes Easy Tiger, The Soul and the Sun and Hikes.
