You can trace the evolution and devolution of Sam Drysdale's last love affair on his debut EP, out this summer on Slaight Music/Warner Music Canada.
The Toronto-based singer-guitarist has actually sequenced the songs so you can follow along. "All seven songs are about the same girl, but they also cover the duality between my relationship with her and also with liquor," Sam says candidly. "I couldn't help notice the similarities. Love is supposed to be a drug. […] There's a beautiful feeling about drinking and love that is equally dangerous. It's always walking that tightrope. Like A Man is the hottest, blue-flame moment at the start of a relationship, and Better When I'm High and Wasted are when I'm down."[…]
Produced by Thomas "Tawgs" Salter (Lights, Walk Off the Earth, Scott Helman), as well as songwriting collaborators Nate Ferraro, Mike Sonier, Alexandra Soumalias and Ron Lopata, the EP is a contemporary pop EP anchored by Sam's soulful emotive voice and EDM programming.
