Introducing hot new Australian singer Sam Bluer and his debut single “Body High”
by Christopher Smith
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.
