NEW MUSIC: Sampha – Without
by Ayian C.
By now we should be quite familiar with Sampha, having heard his distinctive, sumptuous vocals and production skills on SBTRKT‘s self-titled album, his collaborations with Jessie Ware on tracks like their version of Bobby Caldwell’s ‘What you won’t do for love‘, and as one half of Short Stories with Koreless.
Now the rising star from South London is releasing his solo EP Dual out July 29 on Young Turks. Dual gives the impression of leafing through a personal journal of intimate, soulful, low-fi melodic excursions, enveloped in emotional depth and poignancy, demonstrating Sampha as a passionate and prolific singer-songwriter.
Listen to the first teaser “Without”, which dropped last week, and get ready to be blown away.
