Expressive and soulful vocalist and songwriter Sam Way returns with the next chapter of his tale, ‘Hard Feelings’.
Out on the 17th of August, this dark and cello driven signal introduces a whole new side to this artist and model. Sam Way’s last release, ‘You and All Your Things’ was about that point in a relationship when you are trying to work out if you are going to make it, it was about teetering on the brink of destruction and not knowing whether you will make it out of the other side of the tunnel in one piece.
We pick up the story again with ‘Hard Feelings’, and it documents the moment that the relationship falls apart and ultimately fails. ‘Make up your mind and let me know // cause it’s clear that this isn’t working’, he sings in the chorus, along with guest vocalist Fleur.
The track, with its unassuming strings introduction, is soon taken up a notch with the inclusion of Sam Way’s sultry vocals. The intensity is then taken a notch with entry of Fleur’s elegant and beautiful harmonies. The song is delicate and yet there is an underlying power, perhaps a metaphor for the ability to carry on in the midst of despair.
‘Hard Feelings’ was released on the 17th of July, and with new music already being created things don’t seem to be slowing down for this artful singer songwriter. Check out the new track below and follow Sam Way’s socials to make sure you don’t miss anything!
