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.

There’s something new, yet familiar, about its melodies, its heart-warming immediacy and the effortless chemistry that oozes from the bewitching songs within. We’re basically talking the musical equivalent of love at first sight, which is exactly what fans of bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and American roots music will doubtless feel after hearing Jawbone’s quietly magnificent self-titled bow.

Photo: Lera Pentelute Supergroup is a big, ugly label. It’s reductive, and it ramps up the pressure on what is always a new endeavour—even if the players are seasoned pros. Friction is naturally created by expectations rubbing up against the mechanics of making music in a fresh formation, often leading to overhyped records that feel like a tired exhalation of breath from their first note.

Mon 12 Nov 2018
A striking development in the past decade or so has been the extent to which people discover music through mood as opposed to genre. Streaming services have adapted to perceived consumer demand by releasing reams of playlists tailored to every emotion or context imaginable, from deeply depressed to “songs to sing to in the car”. This has its upsides and downsides for a band like Pijn.

Mick Jenkins - Pieces Of A Man (Album Review)
Tue 20 Nov 2018
Mick Jenkins was riding the crest of a wave when his breakout mixtape 'The Water[s]' dropped in the summer of 2014. Talented heads like Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, Noname and Saba would all go on to emerge from the same bubbling Chicago hip-hop scene, but Jenkins had positioned himself in critics' minds as the moody and technically gifted older brother. He already appeared fully formed in an artistic sense, framing highly conceptual songwriting with jazz-influenced verses and a raspy vocal delivery.
