Sound Selection 102: Sam Himself Releases New EP ‘Slow Drugs’

Sam Himself Like A Friend

Firstly on our Sound Selection, we have Sam Himself with a new song Like A Friend from his five-track EP Slow Drugs. The song features a beautiful music video which was filmed in the city of Zurich in Switzerland. The song itself has a well-flowing production with the prominent, distinct vocals of Sam Himself.

Talking about the song Sam Himself stated:“Like a Friend’ is about coming to terms with an ending and admitting to yourself that an era of your history is over, that you’ve exhausted some defining idea of who you are – or thought you were. If you’re truly trying to accept that and move on, you need a brief truce between the various warring factions inside you. Part of the song is an internal plea to be on your own side and cooperate with yourself in letting go.”

re:tract Missing You

Switching up our frequencies we have Missing You by re:tract, a project by multi-instrumentalist and producer Matt Gill. The track features some euphonious pitched-down vocals with a beautiful set of drums and a melancholic-filled ambience. If you’re looking for something to reflect with, then you’ll love Missing You.

Nick de la Hoyde Lay Low

Finally, on this Sound Selection, we have Lay Low by Nick de la Hoyde. Lay Low is one of our favourite tracks of the year, and here are a few reasons why. Firstly, this song is vocally mellifluous and fits the Indie Pop vibe flawlessly. Secondly, we love the catchy lyrics. Ultimately, the overall energetic, full of passion production that holds it all collectively makies Lay Low a jam.
