Hold to the Light Remixed EP1
Throughout the month of March, I released one remix per week - select songs from my latest record Hold to the Light. The whole remix project started after a fan reached out offering to remix “Underneath” …And what Syntheatrics did with this delicate acoustic song was really beautiful, surprising & hypnotizing. It inspired me to reach out and collaborate with more remixers: Jeremy McDonald, Semblance, & Robinson Brakebill, and visual artists: Sarah Megyesy & Evan McCandless to present them in an insteresting way. The entire 4 song remix EP, which includes reimagined versions of Distraction, Collided, Hold to the Light & Underneath, is out now. Check out the visual representations below, that include a magical crayon melting session & animated album art icons...
“Collided” from my latest record has been remixed by Semblance & is out now. Here’s how this fascinatingly fun visual representation was made:
"One afternoon in the High Plains of Eastern Colorado, in a large prairie land workshop Sarah Megyesy took a blow torch to crayons to create the visuals for the “Collided (Semblance Remix)”. She stripped the crayons of their paper cover, lined them up and melted them one by one onto a piece of poster board creating a spectacle of color."
Check out the whole video below / listen to the remixes wherever you like to listen to things.
The first single from the upcoming remix EP is out today. "Distraction" has been remixed by my long time friend and collaborator, Jeremy McDonald. This visual representation was animated by Evan McCandless using the Distraction icon from the album art by Charlie Wagers.
Listen wherever you like to listen.
When recording of my album Hold to the Light wrapped, we shot this series of solo electric videos right there in the studio. Continuing with the series today is "Underneath" - the 4th and final video in the series. This one may be my favorite of them all.
EVERYTHING in my online shop is 20% off until the end of year! That includes this 'ocean glow' colored Hold to the Light vinyl. Take a closer look at the detail and design with this handy dandy vinyl unboxing video I made below.

"I visited colorado for the first time in the fall of 2017, and like most people, was struck by its unique and stunning landscape. The idea of shooting a music video in Fort Collins, CO came up when I met with the folks at The Music District a local organization in Ft Collins that helps facilitate the growth of musicians, whether they are local or traveling through. They have a residency program, where out-of-town artists can come and work on a project with them. We brought up the idea of working on a music video incorporating the Fort Collins/ colorado landscape. They hadn’t done a project like that before and took a chance on trying something new. They helped connect us to local videographers and we started brainstorming ideas, which eventually turned into this video shoot in August of 2018.
The song I chose to make the video for is the title track of my new album Hold to the Light. I wanted to draw from the visual aspects of the lyrics and play with different forms of light. The videographers I worked with on this project, EvrGlo Media, really embraced the idea of trying a bunch of things out to see how they would look. We even decided on trying to shoot the Fort Collins sunrise. So, I got up at 4:30 in the morning & drove up to Horsetooth Reservoir, which you will see a lot of in the video. Just in the nick of time, we caught the most amazing sunrise… I mean it was absolutely perfect. I have to say, I haven’t seen many sunrises in my life, so this was pretty special, and to get it on camera was even better. It fit the mood and vibe of the song perfectly."

FULL SHOW CALENDAR
Glide Magazine premiered Hold To The Light, saying:
"The music and lyrics feel fully realized as songs flow into one another, painting a sonic portrait that is catchy as it is thoughtful. Here Annibale transcends the labels of folk, indie rock and pop to make music that is entirely of her own creation. There is euphoria, elation, sadness, and reflection all layered throughout, and it hardly feels like a stretch to imagine Annibale enchanting an audience at Coachella with the poppier tunes on the album, which bring to mind a more intellectual version of Haim."

MORE PRESS FOR THE NEW RECORD:
"As always, what stands out most on “Hold to the Light” is her fragile, soaring vocal range, reminiscent of iconic art-rock singers Sarah McLachlan and Sinead O’Connor." -Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"(Glow) embodies a dreamy hot day spent with the one you love. Brooke will use her new album to explore different narratives and challenge her listeners in new and compelling ways. " -The Wild Honey Pie
"an ethereal, ambience-tinged indie-pop record with folk roots, with a mix of electronic soundscapes and minimal instrumentation.... the melodies are tantalizing and memorable" - Pittsburgh City Paper
"an album that finds her branching out from her acoustic-folk roots, to seamlessly incorporate more electronic indie-pop textures. It’s a good fit for her already-alluring voice and thoughtful songwriting." -Beaver County Times
