With grey visuals complementing uplifting vocals, One Horse Pony has revealed a new video for the song 'Cut To Black' two days after its release
The alternative roots, Cork-based band One Horse Pony released the new track 'Cut To Black' earlier this week. Now, they've shared a music video for it.
A collaborative project between seven songwriters, 'Cut To Black' is an uplifting, impassioned piece written, composed, recorded, and produced at Orphan Studios.
In addition to One Horse Pony's own Rob Foley, Kevin Morrison, Tim O'Leary and Alan Roy Scott, the acclaimed Gavin Glass, Maeve Hunter and Chris O'Sullivan, all had a hand in crafting the final, Cajun-influenced result.
The seven artists banded together after COVID, pent up and ready to create. Funded by the Music Industry Stimulus Package with support from the Arts Council and First Contact Music, they brainstormed the piece in a Wexford workshop, producing the summer single out now.

Premiered by Hot Press here, the new video for 'Cut To Black' features the One Horse Pony in-studio. Filmed in grayscale, it gifts listeners a view into the process behind the band's latest impassioned track - both the recording process itself and the love for life the members fostered in the studio between takes.
"Our story is old / But worthy of telling / A love that broke beds / And our neighbours screaming our names..."
Veterans of the Irish music scene, One Horse Pony have performed at the likes of Electric Picnic, the Guinness Cork Jazz Festival, the Kilkenny Roots Festival, and Indiependence. 'Cut To Black' isn't just another song for them - it's a "classic in the making" roots anthem valuing life for what it is in every small, nebulous moment.
"The credits roll on us / Cut to Black..."
