Sam Evian Shares Two New Tracks

Thursday, 17 May 2018 Written by Laura Johnson


Sam Evian has shared two songs from his new album.

'You, Forever', his second LP, will arrive on June 1 via Saddle Creek. Head below to listen to Country and to check out a video for the title track.

Discussing Country, which was inspired by a trip he took with his girlfriend, Hannah Cohen, Evian said:

“For a hundred miles we didn’t see a person or even a tree. Then all of a sudden this giant dust cloud appeared which turned out to be ten cowboys on horses lassoing cows. It was the most real thing I’ve ever seen."

Regarding You, Forever, he continued:

"A  few  years  back, I  had a prolific  week of writing after  I fell on some icy concrete  and smacked my head on a steel  grate. I’m sure I sustained some sort  of concussion, which left me feeling pretty  lucid. I had been thinking about Bowie a lot, and decided to try and write something with a 'Rock and Roll Suicide' kinda vibe. ‘You, Forever' just tumbled out of my head, lyrics, melody and all. It was kind of stream of consciousness, which is rare for me. I shelved the song and forgot about it, but dug it out when I was preparing to make this record. It was exciting to sing the words again. They felt more potent than I remembered, but still had the charm of a nice head injury. ‘If you're anxious, If you're worn, if you're keeping to yourself on the telephone’...who isn’t?”

The New York-based singer-songwriter will appear at the Great Escape in Brighton this weekend, prior to headline shows in Bristol, Birmingham, London, Glasgow and Leeds. He will also support Unknown Mortal Orchestra at Manchester's Albert Hall on May 26 alongside Deerhunter and Boy Azooga.

It’s easy to question the authenticity of any young musician who stirs up a super-sized buzz. Are they merely a record company’s latest marionette? Yet another superficial media darling destined for 15 minutes of fame? Dan Owen certainly generated significant plaudits before his debut album, ‘Stay Awake With Me’, had even been released, but the finished product revealed a special singer-songwriter who, after years of grafting for his shot at the big time, is being lauded for all the right reasons.

There’d be no record companies or publications trying to shape our tastes. Image would be unimportant. Sales irrelevant. Radio airplay redundant. The only thing that would matter would be the creativity of the musician and how they reflect themselves through their art.

Dan Owen - Stay Awake With Me (Album Review)
Thu 30 Aug 2018
Courtesy of a period that saw commercially-minded, and often painfully bland, singer-songwriters dominating the airwaves, the very label is enough to inspire a healthy amount of cynicism these days. But Dan Owen’s debut album is a stellar example of how the genre can, in the right hands, be both radio friendly and artistically satisfying.
