To follow up the release of his dreamy indie-rock track ‘Four Eyes’ (released July 24), Sammm. is announcing the release of his new EP ‘Fresh Sheet Feeling’ (out October 16) alongside the release of his new track ‘Faye’ (out September 18).
‘Four Eyes’ with its melancholic sentiments and offbeat rock vibe paired with the strong narrative of the music video saw support from Double J, Blunt Mag, AU Review, AAA Backstage, ABC Rage, 4ZZZ and more.
“It’s part kooky off beat rock and part lush coastal charm and the combo works well.” (Declan Byrne, Triple J)
“It’s an emotional journey for any viewer, but also a warning that though everything may seem fine, we never really know what’s going on with those around us.” (Blunt Mag)
“Woozy strumming guitars, lo-fi drums and sweeping chord progressions. Add to this Sammm’s perfect vocal delivery and you’ve got a hit.”
Now, in this slow-burner of a lead single ‘Faye’, Sammm. ups the dose on his dreamy, luscious vibes in a love song. Sam Geddes states:
“‘Faye’ is an unconventional love song romanticising the understanding between two lovers about their independent lives prior to meeting.”
Embrace for an altern-style slow dance as ‘Faye’ opens with a clean, crisp electric guitar – coated in a chorus effect – strummed in time with the laid-back off-beat drums as Geddes embellishes notes, sliding up the fretboard. Layers of synths add depth to the track as a smooth, harmonic melody glides above while intermittent fuzzy waves fade in and out.
Becoming a defining characteristic of Sammm. is Geddes kooky,eccentric and restrained angsty/ punk vocal tone and accent – all of which add colour and impact to the separate verses as the song progresses.
Finally making its way out of this altern slow dance, the track closes with an instrumental minute of uptempo, feel-good, celebratory jangle pop.
Both ‘Faye’ and previously release single ‘Four Eyes’ display a uniqueness about Sammm. and what is to come from that amazing fresh sheet feeling in the EP, out October 16.
