Video: Anna B Savage – Corncrakes

Anna B Savage is a London-based singer songwriter who first hit my radar a couple of months ago through her track A Common Tern. Her follow-up single has a similarly bird-based title.

Corncrakes is a track that will give you goosebumps. It’s slow and stripped-back. Anna’s vocals are accompanied by electro-acoustic guitar and harmonies that come and go. From such minimalism comes power, however, and the imagery in the lyrics is captivating.

I don’t feel my description really gives Corncrakes justice. It’s a unique and wonderful piece of art that needs to be heard for itself. Check out the video below.
