NORTH AMERICAN TOUR SUPPORTING DORA JAR CONTINUES THROUGH SOLD OUT SHOW
AT L.A.’S HISTORIC TROUBADOUR ON NOVEMBER 30
Alternative singer-songwriter/model/artist Sam Austins pays tribute to the patron saints of Lower East Side debauchery with “Dancing With The Devil”, his electrifying new paean to The Strokes available now at all DSPs and streaming services HERE and listen HERE. Written in the claustrophobic solitude of an East Hollywood apartment after relocating from NYC to LA, the emotionally and musically charged new track reflects a spiraling psyche torn between the urgency and anxiety of making a name for oneself while simultaneously longing for a place in time where you can never return.
“The Strokes remind me of a time when the only thing that I could afford was bodega meals, living in New York,” says Austins. “The energy of us poor kids from Detroit, running around Manhattan like it was all ours still means the absolute world to me. I wanted to create a song that captured that madness.”
“Dancing With The Devil” marks the latest single from Austins’ eagerly anticipated new EP, due early next year. The project – which follows the Detroit-born, Los Angeles-based artist’s 2021 debut mixtape, HOMELESS STAR – was first heralded with last month’s premiere of the triumphant “Matador,” available for streaming and download HERE. Produced by Rodaidh McDonald (The xx, David Byrne, Hot Chip), the track exemplifies Austins’ paradoxical ability to create ethereal indie pop with a razor-sharp edge, a groundbreaking musical approach tattooed by a creative bravado that lures with a red cape but conceals a devastating sword.
