Brooklyn-based indie artist Samira recently released her latest song ‘Home’ from her 1st album ‘Samira & The Wind’. Music fans should take note, if you haven’t been blessed with the opportunity to hear Samira’s music, you are certainly in for a pleasant surprise. To be honest, we haven’t been this excited about discovering an artist since Natalie Imbruglia was “Torn”, Eminem borrowed Dido’s ‘Thank You’ for his record ‘Stan’, and Adele gave us ‘Someone Like You’. While we still mourn the 90s and hold on tightly to the few artists of today that deliver legitimate talent versus a pop product packaged for the masses, Samira is a welcome change and breath of fresh air.
‘Home’ is a song that brings perfection to the listener from fade-in to fade-out both instrumentally and vocally. The musical score for the track has a very laid-back energy, delicate melodies and raw folk feel. Instrumentals slowly build from what initially appears to be an uncomplicated set of scales to a more complex series of harmonious chords that are interwoven beautifully with Samira’s delightful vocals. The balance between the music and their vocals are appropriate where one does not over power the other but instead both create a harmonious frequency.
Samira as a vocalist, delivers a very polished performance. Her voice is soft, soothing and distinct in quality. She demonstrates a wide range of chords and approaches the song with personality and style. Samira has a youthful sound but offers a sophisticated style that is well beyond her years. The depth of her vocal skills are very much reminiscent to early Joss Stone and Adele though Samira sings in a higher pitch.
‘Home’ introduces thought-provoking lyrical content which is most unusual to find today in the mainstream. Meaningful songs are few and far between as music continues to morph into various forms, as new genres emerge and fuse together to create a hybridization of sounds that were once more recognizable. Samira illustrates a story through intricate songwriting that will speak to individuals who are on another level, those people who have no issues expressing feelings including those that are actually sad. In a world where everything is as perfect as the next selfie, a listening experience like ‘Home’ is a reawakening of sorts.
If you are in search of some emotional tracks that give you the feels, then Samira’s latest music release is likely to hit very close to home, no pun intended. We appreciated the opportunity to experience true musicianship and clever artistry, and feel you should take the opportunity to do exactly the same. Listen to Samira’s latest release ‘Home’.
Originally from Los Angeles, Samira now calls Brooklyn, NY home. Samira got her start when she was asked to demo a song for singer then rising artist Lorde by her step-father who is a composer for film, TV, and commercials. Samira’s vocals were included on The Hunger Games Catching Fire film track “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”. You can also hear Samria’s voice on the new trailer for Resident Evil 7 VR game. In addition to lending her vocals for these world-famous projects, Samira co-wrote and performed on “Cateura-Vamos a Soñar” which was featured in the documentary film ‘Landfill Harmonic’. In 2016, the song was a lead contender for the Oscars. Samira performs with her own band Samira and The Wind but also has performed alongside Landfill Harmonic Trinity Church, with folk singer Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul, and Mary). ‘Home’ is the newest release from her recent album “Samira & The Wind”.
