Nova Scotia-based singer/songwriter Christina Martin has just released a stunning new video for her latest single, “Lungs Are Burning” a forerunner for her new album titled Impossible To Hold releasing early in the New Year.
Directed by Halifax filmmaker Jason Levangie it is visually awash with collage illustrations framing Martin’s silhouette presence against a stark white background. Montreal illustrator Nicole Aline Legault beautiful artwork is the perfect complement to this visual treat.
The track is one of deep meaning for Christina – written in response to losing her brother in 2013 to an opioid overdose whilst living in Toronto. The video also features Hogtown’s skyline and it couldn’t be more fitting.
Christina heads off for extensive dates in January for a European tour going through until April. Having seen her recently at her powerful full-band sold-out show at the Carleton in Halifax, we hope to see her back on the East Coast promoting “Impossible To Hold” when all the snow has melted!
Hi, I’m originally from the UK; born between the music cities of Liverpool & Manchester, and have been playing guitar and going to see live music ever since High School. Arena gigs are good, but nothing beats the small intimate venues that showcase the talent and energy when a band is just starting out. I love all kinds of music, particularly guitar bands like the Smiths, the Cure, Lemonheads through to the likes of Modest Mouse, July Talk and Catfish & the Bottlemen….oh and coming from Liverpool, I have to say the Beatles!
I have been a Graphic Designer for over 20 years, I love music and I love a good album cover (check out Peter Saville’s creations). Since moving to Halifax, NS in 2009, I have started to write my first music book, and it’s a pleasure to join the talented team at Canadian Beats!
