WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE SAMUEL EVANSON – SHE WAS BLIND

With his debut album looming in the distance, Samuel Evanson presents his first single, She Was Blind. The singer-songwriter who hails from Wales brings forth an exciting indie flare and emotive vocal performance.

Now based in Liverpool, Sam’s impressive single matches jangly guitars with classic 80’s indie chorus tones to steady drumming rhythms. She Was Blind presents a character talking about disloyal individuals and that you don’t need vision to see deceit. The verses and choruses merge and progress so elegantly like a Sam Fender track.

The indie jangle pop sound is a classic inviting indie sound, the kind of sound you’ll find on an early 1975 record. However, Samuel is much more cutting-edge and less tongue-in-cheek than the aforementioned band. This isn’t jangle pop with bells and whistles, it’s straightforward and follows a smooth rhythm and beat.

Sam’s vocals are quite impressive here as his emotive lyrical themes are felt with his soaring voice. The conclusion of the track hits at the emotions when it suddenly drops off. Whilst you may be wanting more from this 2:35 single, it manages to achieve plenty leading to its untimely climax. The chorus is so entrancing with the guitar tones adding a swaying aura to the track. The first chorus doesn’t give you much time however, we’re focusing on the verses.

The higher vocal range that Sam possesses is given the ability to flourish. Drifting from the pre-chorus to the second chorus, his heart-stricken words are delicate and soulful. The 80s guitar tones throughout have that classic North West sound that Samuel will have surrounded himself with. It’s great to hear how the track progresses from such a steady verse to a seamless burst. You can differentiate so much, yet at the same time blink and miss it.

Sam’s debut album is set to release around June and after many years of work, I for one am excited to hear the rest of his sound.
