In the video for Alexei Shishkin's "Pittsburgh" the singer brings to life the magic and feeling of unlimited possibility. Viewers follow along for a day in the life of Shishkin and throughout it all languid guitars, splashes of percussion and warped instrumental effects set the stage for one beautiful journey. The track and video work in perfect harmony, visuals bringing to life the heart of a track that seems so personal and sincere. If you've ever written in a journal you know what it's like to look back and to see those memories blossom again to life in your mind, and "Pittsburgh" brings that feeling of enlivened old memories to life. "I knew that everything felt like a dream," Shishkin sings, and it's the perfect summary of his own work. "Pittsburgh" feels like a dream and we never want to leave. The single comes from 3 out 12/15 on Forged Artifacts.
