Shares new single ‘Eraser’
Debut EP announced for Feb 2021
At just 22 years old, SHRINK aka Sam Breathwick, made his debut last month with breakout single ‘Drowning’ paired with a flame engulfing video directed by ethan + tom – gaining support from tastemaker Abbie McCarthy, and named within Next Wave by Phil Taggert on BBC Radio 1.
Now he shares new single ‘Eraser’ alongside news that his debut EP will be landing in February 2021. “Eraser” is out today!
‘Eraser’ is the most important and lyrically meaningful track on the EP for Sam as he wrote it about the unconditional care his mum showed in supporting his brother at the lowest moments of his life.
“I know that it’s hard watching history repeat itself, it goes on and on like a clock as it’s ticking in time time time, time and again…”
The hypnotic rhythm pulls you in with its slow acoustics and lively bass, alongside SHRINK’s captivating vocals and telling lyrics of what it’s like to see someone you love become someone different.
Soft yet sultry guitar stings pluck and gather momentum for the track’s proceedings, resonating emotion and setting the immediate foundations for the atmosphere of the track. Before the harrowing and honest lyrics take the presidency of this melodic arrangement. You fall into the lull of the soft track before the dynamic instrumentation changes the tone, harsher rhythms exude and the intensity cranks up.
22 year old Sam Breathwick started producing when he was just out of school. Born in Tooting, living in Singapore, Germany, and settling in Kent’s Sevenoaks, the half-German / half-British musician is proud of his mixed-heritage and encompasses this in his creative process where possible.
He produces and mixes his records in a studio based in Tottenham, where he commutes from Kent most days.
Sam has already made a name for himself as the hotly-tipped producer Vasser who got the attention of Notion, Clash, Line Of Best Fit, Complex, and more, and has gained millions of listens on Spotify.
As well as SHRINK, Sam continues to collaborate with the likes of Connie Constance on the rippling ‘Monty Python’, the opening tracks from NAYANA IZ’s explosive EP ‘SMOKE & FLY’, Sam Akrpo, Scuti, Sunken etc.
