You know you’ve stumbled across an absolute gem of a track when you crack a smile before the prelude has even finished seamlessly leading you into the first verse. Samuel Yuri is the genius behind the brand new single Wind Before the Storm. Slapping a genre label on the his sound almost seems criminal, whilst it flirts with Grunge, Classic Rock, Lo Fi and Goth Rock simultaneously the sound is irrefutably organic.
If you’re a fan of Type O Negative, Bauhaus, Alice in Chains, Danzig or the 69 Eyes, you really wouldn’t want to miss out on Wind Before the Storm. Samuel’s Lo Fi approach to production allowed the melancholy to pierce through the melody of this track to give you a reticently beautiful offering of Goth Rock.
You can check out the sensational single Wind Before the Storm via YouTube. It’s safe to say I’m already a little bowled over by his sun soaked, grungey style. That will be the roots of his São Paulo heritage pouring through.
You’ll probably want to keep up to date with Samuel Yuri’s latest tracks by giving the aurally fabulous artist a like on Facebook.
