Sam Ludlow has dropped “Cruise”, exploring a new vocal direction by blending lofi and hip-hop in this new single that follows the release of his two last indie/soul tracks.
He drew his inspiration for this third single from artists such as Nealo, Kojaque and Uly and produced it mostly by himself with the help of his friend Mateusz for some finishing touches and mixing.
Sam said about his single, “I wrote a little instrumental and heard a rap over it, except I didn’t know any rapper so I gave it a shot myself. The song has a few themes based around the pursuit of love and meaningfulness in a journey that usually ends where you started”.
If you like the styles of Tom Misch, Rex Orange County and Loyle Carner,. then you can add “Cruise” to your playlist unhesitatingly!
