It’s a return to form for London Soul singer Samm Henshaw as he follows up his amazing single “How Does It Feel” with another rousing, upbeat number “Broke“, coming in with an ingenious lyric video.
The new track is a playful plea for one more chance at redemption with the woman of his desires, scuffed to velvety imperfection by a crackling drum track and vintage, amped-up horn bursts. Henshaw’s iconic husky vocals and dreamy harmonies find their way interweaving with the infectious groove so effortlessly put together by Josh Grant and Levi Lennox.
As mentioned, “Broke” is accompanied by a clever lyric video set in Samm’s room. Here, he embodies the character of a vagrant, confined his pigsty of a room in a modern tale of misfortune. With no job and no girl, yet he somehow finds a way to keep himself amused throughout the entirety of the video.
Though he’s keeping most of the details about his album under wraps, it’s abundantly clear that after spending the last two years working and touring with the likes of Pharrell, Rag’n’Bone Man and Maverick Sabre, Mr. Henshaw is cooking up something major for his full-length debut.
