FRESH: ‘Northern Slang/This Time’ – Sam Brockington

Sam Brockington releases “Northern Slang/This Time”.

by Christopher Smith

Hailing from Devon, Sam Brockington began his solo career as a busker in Melbourne, Australia, where he was able to develop a distinctive folk inspired singer-songwriter style influenced by the likes of Matt Corby. Upon returning to the UK and relocating to Bristol, Sam began to focus on shaping his sound and following and became a regular in the festival circuit, with highlights including Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds. Inspired by the pace and diversity of the city, Sam’s music has now matured into a fusion of alternative indie whist still preserving that earnest and warming singer-songwriter edge.

He says of his latest single, “Northern Slang/This Time”: “It’s a love song inspired by the little idiosyncrasies and features of a person that make them unique. Stylistically I was inspired by artists like Matt Corby and Fleet Foxes use of layered harmonies coming in one by one to create a swirling and full backdrop for the melody to sit on. After partnering with Sentric the song was chosen to be featured in a large selection of high street stores in the UK in 2020 and has now premiered on BBC Introducing pre-release”.
