Sam Setton – Luv U Right

Sam Setton

New York singer Sam Setton shares ‘Luv U Right’, as featured on his ‘Renegade’ EP, which explores the end of his most recent relationship.

Speaking about ‘Luv U Right’, Sam explains, “This song is about the feeling I had when I realized I was in love, but at the same time conflicted, because I’m not sure she realizes it and if she’s ready or not. I’m asking her to let me in, and letting her know I’m the one for her… I wrote this song in hopes it can be an anthem for people who think they aren’t valued enough in the eyes of their lovers.”

Goldroom – Spread Love

Goldroom

We absolutely love a positive message, especially when conveyed through music, and it appears that ‘Spread Love’ by Goldroom does just that.

Goldroom has decided to release the live favourite as a single (featuring vocals by Rooty) and although it edges towards pop more than his former releases, it still offers that signature feel-good dance sound that Goldroom is renowned for.

Goldroom said of the release: “My goal for this song was to try and capture the kind of simple earnestness that a lot of early French House had, which was a major inspiration for me. Playing it on the road the last few months, the vibe in the room would just light up as audiences reacted to the energy of the song. It felt like it was the right time to release the song to the world.”

Goldroom – Lying To You

Goldroom

Goldroom

Goldroom is always at the forefront of Californian indietronica, effortlessly and always combing upbeat disco beats with graceful vocals (whether his own, or others).

So imagine our excitement when he announced the new video for ‘Lying To You’, directed by Tim Nackashi (OK Go, TV On The Radio).

Set on a boat, off the coast of Catalina Island, regular sailor, Goldroom makes us feel right at home in his “vintage thriller with a twist”.

‘Lying To You’ has been taken from Goldroom’s ‘West of The West’ album, out on 23 September via Downtown Records.

Sam Setton – Berlin

Sam Setton

Sam Setton

New York City native Sam Setton is a singer/songwriter who has been creating raw and honest music since his early teens.

Don’t be deceived, though. Sam has taken a while crafting his sound of electronically driven pop and R&B – possibly due to his high flying job as a financial consultant – but he has still managed to find time in the evenings to escape and experiment with his music.

His new track Berlin explores this struggle;

“Berlin is a song I wrote about the constant struggle of being in a toxic relationship. On the surface there’s honesty; feelings of regret, love and hate. But at the core, there is a hope that with patience, things will work out.”
