Brand new EP 'Take 2' from Pritt & S.A.M
Blending together their differing cultures, Pritt and S.A.M have developed a creative crossover never heard before on their dual concept EP, 'Take 2'. Hailing from opposite sides of London, this dynamic duo have incorporated their own unique styles into one unifying listening experience.
With each song having its own endlessly relatable narrative, this powerful pair have been able to harness their many sonic influences into one idiosyncratic sound. Channelling her Tamil heritage, Pritt combines her cultural influences with her signature brand of female empowerment, while S.A.M brings in aspects of Afro Caribbean, Western Sounds in addition to leaning into his Asian heritage.
Sharing his thoughts on the project, S.A.M said:
“I remember watching this documentary one day and just thinking that the sea can be the most peaceful place to be on a summers day but in a storm can be the most destructive. It just reminded me of a toxic relationship. Sometimes you can try find love in other people yet you still come running back and end up in a repetitive cycle of “drowning in love”. To the point it becomes too much and you just left with memories of a person. I think that’s what “Drowning” really tried to channel. The song itself was made a good two years ago but just seemed so relevant and fitting for the project. You do see a lot of joint male and female songs however, rarely do we see a whole project. This could be historic”
Having already garnered support for their first two releases, "365" and "Smoke and Mirrors", this charming couplet are hoping for the same reaction to their new single "Drowning" that closes off the EP. The entrancing and ethereal soundscape is a prime example of their dynamic sound, pulling in aspects from all of their influences to create this heady concoction.
Pritt explains her insight on the project:
“Drowning focuses on the penultimate part of a toxic relationship, past all the heartbreak where you are nothing but done with the situation. Reminiscing the good times but the bad seems to outweigh it. The back and forth between S.A.M and Pritt sounds like a conversation, where they don’t see eye to eye eventually ending the relationship for good. They are both dragging each other down hence the title ‘Drowning’. There are only a handful of people I would choose to work with, and I’m glad S.A.M and I can share what we’ve been up to these past couple months”
