Born To Live

ChrissyAward-winning British songwriters, composers and multi-instrumentalists Chrissy Mostyn and Rick Pilkington, The Blackheart Orchestra, are back with the new music video for their latest single “Born To Live”.

One of the must-see bands of 2017, the pioneering folktronica duo blend musical styles seamlessly sidestepping boundaries to create music huge enough to fill a cathedral. Always producing something beyond all easily marketed genres, fusing acoustic fragility and pulsing electronica, The Blackheart Orchestra bring together stringed instrument dexterity with 80’s synthesizers and clear classical influences. One moment their sound is minimal and molecular, the next a mountain-like wall of sound with vast symphonic climaxes.
