What’s up gang, hope you are all doing well and having a great week so far. I have some awesome new music and content coming your way for the rest of this week and still have many submissions to catch up on so I’m sure there will be even more after that, but to start off the content this week (I know its Wednesday already) we have the new single ‘Gum’ from the brilliant Sam Setton.
The artist coming from New York combines the art of story telling with beautiful vocals and a luscious tune to make ‘Gum’, and its all about the love with this track. Sam has said that he named the track ‘Gum’ because love can be “so amazing but also fleeting,” reminiscent of “the burst of flavor when you first chew a piece of gum.”
We asked Sam a few short questions and here is what he had to say:
