Just Listen: Sam Valdez – Hours

Sam Valdez

Words: Elena Katrina 

From the first few notes of hearing Hours by Sam Valdez I was compelled to write about it. Hauntingly beautiful and striking vocals which are, at times, reminiscent of Lana Del Ray. Backed with a quietly atmospheric soundtrack which creates a feeling of unease with steady ripples and a uneasy thudding heartbeat, without ever taking away from the vocal and the story. I was somewhat gutted to see she’s an LA based artist, purely for selfish reasons, as I want to see Sam play live and know this is going to take some doing. A stunning song to get lost in, especially on a Monday morning when things are all feeling a little low after the gratifying natural highs of a weekend off.  Breathtakingly good.
