Merseyside songwriter John Joseph Brill has revealed a stop-motion music video for his debut EP’s title track, ‘Pieces’.

Following the acclaim of 2014’s ‘Muscle & Bone’, the ‘Pieces’ video encapsulates the storyteller himself in thousands of individual photographs. “It’s a raw exploration of one man’s internal honesty,” John Joseph Brill explains. “There are no fancy frills or special effects, it’s completely DIY and as raw as the song is. It wears its blemishes as badges of honour.”

‘Pieces’ was written shortly after Brill left London doom-folk outfit Burning Beard, a time which saw him immersed in the West London folk hub populated by the likes of The Staves, Laura Marling and Bear’s Den. “It’s about an individual who starts off with such staunch principles – politically, morally, whatever, in a very idealistic sense – only to later betray those essentially for the sake of making money,” he reveals.

The Pieces EP sees John Joseph Brill empowered with a new-found ability to articulate things never previously said aloud, and features four beautifully crafted songs that are equally affecting as they are anthemic. Recorded with rising producer Kristofer Harris (Annie Eve, Smoke Fairies, Jay Brown, Bear’s Den, Story Books) and Andrew Davie (singer of Bears Den), the EP also features live favourite ‘Golden Kids’ and ghostly closer ‘Sleeping Beast’, as well as 2014’s powerful ‘Muscle & Bone’.

The EP is released digitally, worldwide, this week via Killing Moon Records. Purchase here and catch John Joseph Brill at his sold out launch show on February 25th at London’s The Islington, and at the dates below with BC Camplight in March.
