Sam Eagle

The lead track from Sam Eagle’s debut “Nothing In Particular” EP is not likely to pick up much in the way of radio play, at least in the daytime – some decidedly NSFW language in a repeated refrain is likely to challenge the censors. But “Catchy Tune About Eyes or Something’” is just that – a catchy tune, with an engaging off beat video to match.

Hailing from Colchester, Sam is is a 17 year old songwriter who aptly describes his songs as all very short, very simple, a little bubbly, with no meaning. Noe of the other songs on the EP – “Bodies”, “Dirt” and “Rainsticks” exceeds the two minute mark with the whole EP just closing in around six and a half minutes. Having eschewed the complications of band life the songs resonate with the freedom afforded by taking the solo path, written around a few chord one evening, recorded the next day, then up and out.

The accompanying video is similarly simple but shows that creativity doesn’t have to come with a huge budget. Filmed and edited by Jasper Fell Clark it features Sam on acoustic guitar singing against a backdrop of friends Ini accompanying on a kitchen pan (Why?: “because I like cooking”) and Caspar throwing handstands. It’s the perfect companion piece to an accomplished debut, showcasing a talent it is worth looking out for into 2017 and beyond.
