New Music: Samhain – Inner City Fox

Samhain (pronounced Sah-win) is an artist from North Yorkshire that we’ve featured before on the blog. I enjoyed his debut single Let The Horses Run so much that I even shared in on my Jorvik Radio show too. His new one is called Inner City Fox and it explores the disconnection of urban life.

Compared to the lively Let The Horses Run, Inner City Fox is a slow and introspective number. Opening with acoustic guitar, Sam’s vocals float in hauntingly. Yet, there’s a twist for the patient listener. Sam hasn’t lost his knack for imagery in his lyrics and his atmospheric story unfolds richly, eloquent yet speaking to the animal in all of us.

This is Sam’s second release via Warner Music, after he was discovered by chance when an executive heard his music playing in the coffee shop in which he worked. He’s a wonderful discovery for all involved and I love hearing new stuff from him.
