A new song has landed from Vancouver based singer-songwriter Sam Lynch. Beautiful and vulnerable “Darkest Places” comes with a video, which sees Lynch perform the track live in the middle of the street.
Rising folk-pop singer from Canada Sam Lynch began writing songs at a very young age, but it was her five-month solo trip across Europe, undertaken back in 2016, which marked the start of her music career. Since then, she has shared the stage with the likes of Luca Fogale, Alexandria Maillot, Dom Fricot and C.R. Avery.
Often likened to Feist, Phoebe Bridgers and Margaret Glaspy, the young singer also opened for popular Vancouver act Mother Mother during one of her recent shows. Now, she is in the process of releasing her as yet untitled debut record.
Having dropped her critically acclaimed single “Not My Body” earlier this year, Lynch is now sharing a brand-new tune called “Darkest Places”. The subtle and yet memorable folk-pop gem showcases her outstanding vocal and songwriting abilities. The track is illustrated by a simple but effective video, which features the vocalist play the guitar and sing in the middle of a suburban road.
The upcoming album from Sam Lynch is described as “an ode to self-discovery and to the subtle-yet-profound moments of life”. Speaking about her new music, the artist said, “if I get goosebumps, tingly in my legs, tight in my chest, or my stomach drops, I feel like things are working”.
