Stockholm-based Garage Folk artist Lee Sama’s latest single Luana is just one of the disarming reasons why you’ll want to make room for this artist on your radar.
With the raw and gritty appeal of Grunge but arranged under the accordance of Psych-laced Folk, paradoxically, Luana is a hard-hitting blissful soundscape.
Fans of Dinosaur Jr, My Bloody Valentine, Yo La Tengo, Pavement, Nirvana, and Pixies will find it all too easy to melt into the emotion-driven hazy track which serves as the perfect introduction to Lee Sama’s indulgently cathartic sound.
Luana may not be the most over-complicated soundscape. Yet, there’s still an artfully beguiling air to the production which will undoubtedly see the artist go far.
