Sam Wilde – ‘On The Run’

Leeds-based singer/songwriter Sam Wilde has released anthemic new single ‘On The Run’, that delves into the internal mental struggles that often come with overthinking situations.

The Britpop-infused gritty new track is driven by rugged guitar riffs and vocals, packing a punch from beginning to end.

Sam establishes himself as an intriguing talent with his sound influenced by a golden era of British guitar bands; finely poised between alternative and blues rock with roots of gentle Americana, with a blend of pop sensibility and passionate vocals.

Having previously supported the likes of Billy Lockett and Dan Owen, the explosive single marks the beginning of an amazing year to come – with a string of January shows to follow the release.
