Hyped-up Animated Electro Band SAM Releases Debut Album
Canada-based cartoon two-piece SAM’s self-titled debut album is released worldwide today under the Swedish Dansant label.
SAM is the Canadian and animated collaboration of Sadoway; the silent but deadly talented electronic music guru, and Mandrake; the fast-talking, misty vocal, pop mouthpiece.
In the spring of 2012, SAM was picked up the Dansant label of the Gothenburg based Substream Music Group – the largest electronic record company in West Sweden – and started preparing for their big launch.
The band’s first single “Bitch Stole My Song” was released in September and has been playing frequently on air in Europe, America and Asia. The track was picked up by the prestigious EQ Music Blog and the remix by U4Ya drew big attention during the Amsterdam Dance Event in September and has been featured in several dance compilations in Europe.
‘Passion EP’ – Coming Soon
Right now, the band is hard at work preparing for the next single from the album, scheduled for March. The track, called “Passion” is an upbea t number - flirting with the house scene and packaged with a animated master piece for a music video featuring Sadoway and Mandrake in an action-packed, futuristic story.
A teaser of the music video is already now available on youtube.
