FRESH: ‘Body High’ – Sam Bluer

Introducing hot new Australian singer Sam Bluer and his debut single “Body High”

Sam Bluer wants to shift your perspective. He wants you to know that pop can be weird. That relationships don’t have to look the way they do on TV. And that uncomfortable topics can make for great songs.

Melbourne singer and songwriter Sam Bluer takes another step towards chart domination with his official debut single “Body High“. The new track follows on from “Shift“, a song that served as an introductory piece, which was released in May.

Body High” is a song about desperately wishing to rekindle a flame with your ex, even through every single fibre in your being is telling you it’s the wrong things to do. “You just want to get high with them one last time” Sam explains. “They’re the only one who can make you feel amazing again”.

Shift” is an anti-love song with bite, a message to someone who needs to change the way they see things and shake up their idea of what a relationship should be. “Slow down a minute to my time/ Keep your emotion behind the line”. “Craving the silence, I don’t miss you when I’m gone.

Written together with pop dynamo Maribelle and produced by Yakk and Tigerilla, “Shift” brings four of Australian music’s best new talents together on the one song. The result is a track that’s dark, 90’s infused, a little bit weird and unapologetically cheeky. It’s all about messing with expectations and rewriting the rules of pop.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
