Music Video of the Day: Sam Brittain “Stab in the Dark” (2016)

Adelaide troubadour Sam Brittain has released his new single and music video for “Stab in the Dark”, a great introduction for newcomers to this talented songwriter’s sound. Featured on his new album Signal Lights, “Stab in the Dark” showcases Brittain’s rich vocal, padded out by some gorgeous guitar, percussion and strings.

Brittain has said of “Stab in the Dark”, I was beginning to see the real sacrifices that have to be made as a touring artist in order to be successful.  The loved ones you leave behind.  Losing a dear friend of mine a few months prior to a stroke was a shotgun blast to the heart… It was a blatant reminder that none of us are invincible and you never know when your time is up.”

The music video for the single saw Brittain work with Adelaide filmmaker Kieran Ellis-Jones of Crystal Arrow Films and reflects the introspective, delicate nature of the music itself.

A great watch and a great piece of music from an artist we’re expecting to see a lot more from as this year rolls out.
