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.”

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.”

RITUAL – Instinct

RITUAL – Instinct

Minimalist R&B pop three-piece RITUAL returns with Instinct.

Of the track, the band say

“Instinct’ is the warmest record we’ve written – it has a nostalgic nod to Soul and UK Garage in the production, and as a song it’s about the most uplifting of natural human instincts – to love and to be loved.”

It’s the third track to be revealed from their forthcoming second EP entitled ‘From The City To The Wilderness’.

Following on from RITUAL‘s collab with upcoming solo artist Frances (which can be located on our July playlist), the three-piece return with ‘Josephine’, featuring Lisa Hannigan.

Combining RnB with folk, it’s another warm tingle-inducing track.

Speaking on the new single, the band said “We’ve always been fascinated by dual female/male vocals on records – the electricity of the connection between two people, two different takes on the same emotion – and the tension and harmony this creates.”

These intimate pairings with female artists certainly seem to be something that RITUAL excel at, with the trio going on to say, “Lisa Hannigans vocals on the first Damien Rice record, together with his songwriting was a big influence – they created something so powerful and intimate you almost felt rude for listening in on them. To work with her on this project, and how naturally it came about, almost felt like a sign that we were doing something right.”

‘Josephine’ is the lead single to be lifted from their forthcoming second EP ‘From The City To The Wilderness’, and was named after a lyric in the song. Arguably some of the most personal lyrics the band have ever written, the band explain that the track is “about the feeling of being so closely connected to someone – paired with the deep fear of failing the relationship.”
