‘Storm’, the latest single from Christina Martin, begins quietly and delicately, before steadily building up to become a beautiful, surging anthem. By the end, ‘Storm’ has grown, becoming a sweeping, full song, bursting with tuneful energy. The sustained notes on the electric guitar are the perfect foundation for Martin’s dreamily melodic vocal. Indeed, her voice is particularly impressive, full of gorgeous tone and character. The accompanying video, directed by Matt Charlton, takes the viewer onto the stage and behind the scenes of of the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax. Charlton says: “I wanted to make something that explores how much time, thought, and effort Christina puts into her music. I think she’s really an outstanding artist, but it’s also inspiring to see all the work she does to make that art come to life. This video was inspired by seeing her go through that process for her amazing new album.”
This is the fourth single from Marin’s upcoming album, also called ‘Storm’. Martin says: “I chose Storm as the title track for this album because it represents the failures and hard times that help me become a better person.” Over the last twenty years, Martin has been writing personal, intimate songs that often have a broader, more universal appeal and meaning. Since her 2002 debut ‘Pretty Things’, Martin has been blending genres and sounds. The new album continues her growth as an artist with lush strings added. Look out for the new record on Friday 1st September 2023. Martin has also announced a tour of the UK and Europe in the autumn – further details here. Enjoy.
