Music Video for Atheist Prayer

Directed & Produced by Josh Haggarty

Ababe Music

The premiere of “Atheist Prayer” a striking new video from neo-folk sensation Marta Pacek. According to The Revue, Canada’s Pacek “transports listeners to the sounds of Lucinda Williams, Anne Murray, and Patsy Cline.” The video for “Atheist Prayer” as well as for “Sometimes You Lose” and “The Hunted,” which The Revue calls a “gorgeous, haunting tune that echoes of The Heartless Bastards,” come as Pacek redoubles her promotional efforts in support of her most recent album, Voodoo Dolls and False Alarms. 

Featuring what NewCanadianMusic.cacalls a “bold and vibrant voice that will appeal to fans of Neko Case and Lindi Ortega," Pacek confesses that “it has taken me a while to accept that I like sad songs.” She adds that “I'm not a particularly sad person, but I do find a certain comfort in melancholic songs.” According to Ottawa Life Magazine, Pacek perfectly blends sad and sweet in her increasingly popular take on modern folk music:

“The essence of folk music sounds just as Marta does. With her charming and ever-so-grateful disposition, every twang and forlorn confession has a sublime sound.”

After growing up on the outskirts of Australia’s capital, Canberra, Pacek began her career writing and recording with Mark Seymour, front-man of iconic Australian group Hunters & Collectors. In 2011, Pacek was awarded Best Alternative Country song at the Canberra Country Music Awards for her single "A Girl Gets By.” She also won at Ontario’s New Music Festival, where she earned Best International Artist for her single "Loving Is Easy.” In 2012, Pacek co-produced her second release, Rebel Baby, with Jason Mercer (Ani DiFranco, Ron Sexsmith). Her third album, Voodoo Dolls and False Alarms, was produced by Brad Albetta(Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson).
