Enigmatic singer Sampson has announced the release of her debut single ‘Shake The Fire’. Beautifully melancholic, ‘Shake The Fire’ is reminiscent of the likes of London Grammar and Lana Del Rey, creating an emotional landscape of delicate electronica.
Regarding the single Sampson says, “‘Shake The Fire’ is about papa (my grandad), who was a huge supportive force in my music. I remember as a kid showing him my very first song and driving to music lessons listening to Edith Piaf; he was my best friend.”
“His passing was really hard for my family because he was so invested in me and my siblings. Feeling grief was definitely a time when I came to understand mortality as more than just a word people use. I wrote ‘Shake The Fire’ while realising that we never really have full control of anything, especially not time.”
