Haunting churchy organs lay the groundwork for “Say It”, the latest single by Portland’s darkwave-esque Sama Dams. As new pictures are painted with an older, experienced brush, we are led forward on a wave of darkness that reveals multiple layers. Soft keys punctuate with hopeful flutter while brooding sweetness reminds us of indie’s near goth phase. In all of this we find comfort in reflective tones and the band’s relentless work ethic. This isn’t just another synthy pop song on its way up, so listen closely to its message.
Their upcoming fourth record, Say It, is out April 6th via Friendship Fever and is available for pre-order here. Listen below.
