An ode to love lost, ‘You Broke My Heart So Gently’ is a mature yet gut-wrenching take on the aftermath of a breakup. A longtime feature of his live performances and something of a fan favourite, the track successfully showcases Sam’s unique vocal style – swinging from sweetly melodic to intensely rapped.
The accompanying video, written by Sam and co-directed with Jack Bowden, seeks to reflect the feelings of grieving commonly experienced in the wake of breakups – a window into the mind of a young artist who values emotional honesty as much as artistic integrity.
It follows on from emotive single ‘Follow Suit’, an ode to Sam’s own personal struggles following the suicide of a close friend. Showcasing his raw lyrical style across the production, it followed previous release ‘Tears Beneath My Eyelids’ which used a sample from XXXTentacion. ‘You Broke My Heart So Gently’ is the next chapter in the story of one of the UK’s most intriguing singer-songwriters. His deeply personal lyricism and boundless vocal range cemented his fanbase, and his unique vocal style sets him apart from the crowd.
