In the lead up to the release of debut album ‘Nautical Miles’, Irish solo artist Anna’s Anchor, has released the poignant video for single Hampton.
Marty Ryan, the man, heart and soul behind the Limerick based indie-emo-pop act, gives an insight into the track: “It’s about how due to various abuses from one of my parents, the family and home in Oakhampton was split in two. It was a sad, angry and unsure time but it has a positive outlook despite all of this!”
Filmed by his good friend Shane Serrano, the ‘go to guy’ in his hometown,Marty felt this project was finally worthy of his talents:“His best work in my opinion has been with more simplestory lines in which the video does the talking. I wanted the general concept of the song’s longing for something that isn’t there and dealing with not being in the place you had imagined. My Dad got into ballroom dancing and showed me photos of the eventual location – this ideal super old rural ballroom – the concept developed pretty quickly from this and I think it captures exactly what I envisaged!”
