Samia‘s new tracks “Lasting Friend/Paris” are out now on Grand Jury.
Following up on “Milk“, 22-year-old New York native Samia has shared two new tracks, “Paris” and “Lasting Friend”, as well as a video for the latter. As often with the singer-songwriter, “Lasting Friend” is a cocktail of sharp-witted lyricism, grit and feminism. The track was actually inspired by her personal experience with boys at school. In her own words:
The accompanying Ruby Rose-directed visuals recreate this ‘playful’ middle school period. Simultaneously, you can also see the artist digging a hole in the sand, getting inside of it and eventually hitting a version of herself with a shovel. And she does all of that while obsessively singing “I’m not ashamed of my past” backed by Brooklyn band Active Bird Community. Watch Samia‘s new video below.
