Published Mar 16, 2016Halifax-based songsmith Arsoniste is readying a new EP for release later this year, but before it arrives, Exclaim! is giving you an exclusive first look at a new video from the singer.
The musical moniker of Rachel Sunter (often backed by Patrick Murphy on drums), Arsoniste typically delivers sultry synth-pop jams. The latest offering, however, showcases a stripped-down side to the East Coast performer.
The new clip captures Sunter seated at her piano, filling the room at Deep North Studio with a haunting rendition "Consolation" conveyed using nothing but her keyboard and powerful voice.
The track is the latest to be included in a live music series going by the name #HFXsongs, which as you might deduce, aims to shine a spotlight on talent from Nova Scotia's capital. Watch the live video of Arsoniste doing "Consolation" in the player below.
