Samia

Every song from New York City's Samia shows a poet's gift for capturing the most private of experiences, a gritty specificity that leaves her lyrics carved right onto your heart. Her ballads recall a low-lit charm and her rock songs rev and howl with intensity. But whether the volume is up or down, Samia draws from the same well of sharp-witted lyricism as forebears old and new —from Patti Smith to Liz Phair to Josh Tillman.
