Call it experimental, call it art rock, call it alt-folk or folk rock; however you personally classify Samana’s music, it is an unequivocally compelling reflection of humanity.
Following the release of earlier singles ‘Harvest’ and August’s ‘Passing Me By’, which saw support from BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing and Radio X, Wales-based duo Samana return with their latest single ’The Glory Of Love’. It is taken from their forthcoming ’The Spirit Moving’ EP (set for release on October 22nd).
Self-produced, recorded and mixed whilst holed-up in a remote part of France while the world was locked down earlier in the year, the band explain “‘The Glory Of Love’ is a mantra, stripping away the veneer of everything in life that distracts and overwhelms; to realign the soul with the importance of what it is to be rooted. This song marks the value of connection, returning one to the fundamental principle that lies at the heart of all things – the profundity of what it is to truly love, and to be loved.”
Gig Soup can today share an exclusive live version of the single. Performed beneath the glow of French lamplight in an isolated chateau out in the Midi-Pyrenees, take a look at the video below
