Samuel - 'Falling Star' EP Out Now on Technicolour
You only have to hear a couple of bars of Samuel's music to realise there is something very special going on. Produced in collaboration with Okzharp, who is one third of Hyperdub's LV, Falling Star takes in everything from slowed rave stabs, electronic urban blues, sexualised incantations and yearning soul, sounding more likely to have come from the projects of New York than the nuns and gypsy camps of Ireland.
Working with Cal Bain, Samuel has released two brilliant animated videos for the EP's title track and bonus track "Slowtown Downtown". Head over to Pitchfork for a free download of EP track "Death Star Wonder".
