Sam’s not just singing, he’s breathing fire and taking aim at the issues. It’s a protest song wrapped in a pop tune, shining the spotlight on everything from society’s social media addiction to Australia’s indigenous injustice, including a lyrical nod to Midnight Oil’s anthem ‘Beds Are Burning’. “It juxtaposes the easy ‘unreal’ problems like Instagram likes and how you look online with the real-world problems that are too easily ignored,” declares Sam. “I want to start conversations with my music, not just have people nod along to it.”
To bring Looking For Light to life, the Perth native teamed up with his music idol - world-renown beatboxer, loop artist and producer Dub FX (aka Benjamin Stanford).
It’s a thrilling step forward for the Perth performer, whose mind-blowing mix of vocals, beatboxing and loop effects have already clocked up millions of video views. Fresh and fierce, it swings between soaring pop and searing hip-hop.
