With just a piano by his side, Sampha's latest track "Indecision" is an emotional shot to heart.
Previously released in 2011, "Indecision" captures pain and frustration beautifully from the South London singer/songwrighter. The record also draws inspiration from the passing of a former pop star, as he told Pitchfork, "I wrote it around the time of Amy Winehouseâ€™s death. It's slightly about myself but more about someone who has problems; fundamental issues."
"From the office of wisdom, my answers don't hear their calls/Laugh and leave with what you know, but the pain won't," he candidly sings, with piano strokes crashing against his warm voice. Dimly lit candles and a bottle of Merlot are the perfect pairing for "Indecision."
Sampha's new EP, Dual, is out now.
