With shimmering guitar strings and hypnotic vocals, Sam Valdez captures that ethereal moodiness of Western cinematic aesthetics in her new single “Farther Away.” Boxing us into that gut-wrenching moment departure, “Farther Away” is a farewell song that explores the loneliness and inner dialogue we go through after someone leaves us. Despite the inescapable solitude, there’s something comforting in the chest-swelling ambience of “Farther Away” that makes you actually enjoy the melodic broodiness:

Originally from the desert landscapes of Las Vegas, Sam bases a lot of her writing/composing influences on her upbringing. She is now based in LA, so she isn’t as isolated as she used to be…although crowded isolation is a real epidemic in here. Anyways, go say hi to her:
