Singer-songwriter Andrew Samuel from Newtown, Sydney has sent us the premiere of his new track ‘I Still Feel Blue’ – set to be released on his new EP Hissing Bitterness out August 27th.
Driven by an acoustic guitar ‘I Still Feel Blue’ encapsulates the loneliness and isolation of the middle of nowhere. It’s the kind of tune that you would comfortably play under the stars in the middle of the Australian desert.
Samuel’s whispery, intimate vocals are warmly engaging, teetering somewhere between the warble of The National and the emotional drive of The Tallest Man on Earth. The beauty of Samuel’s brand of folk is that it does not beg for your attention, rather it enters your world quietly. ‘I Still Feel Blue’ stands among a crowd of other local folk music, yet it delicately prevails to be the most beautiful.
You can check out more of Andrew Samuel’s EP this Saturday upon its release, and see him live on his national tour starting August 25th in Brisbane.
