Here is a pair of new tracks from Samuel, the NY-based pop artist who had one of the catchiest songs of 2010 with “I Heart NY.” These two are in the same vein, combining addicting melodies with knocking beats. “Neverland” is already in my head. If I hadn’t already made my summer mix, this would have been track 10.
With production duo The Knocks and executive producer Greg Wells behind him, the whole album is dynamically original and heartfelt. ‘Trains to Wanderland,’ the appropriately titled LP, will be released over the coming summer months starting with fan-favorite ‘Neverland’ and B-side ‘Safety Off’ as the forerunners.
