Hailing from the depths of the Nevada desert, Sam Valdez showcases her love for the expansiveness of her home surroundings, giving her music a vast and cinematic feel. Her latest single “Clean” is an ethereal and haunting example of this atmospheric indie/rock we have come to love. Not a typical love song, the charming track touches more on the attraction of self-destruction and getting a kick off of the unknown. Valdez speaks about appreciating both the good and the bad in people and almost finding someone's darker qualities more appealing.
“Clean” features twangy, resonating guitar melodies, soft, delicate vocals and minimalistic soundscapes, providing a clean canvas for Valdez’s heart-wrenching lyrics. Her music oozes with authenticity, with the songwriter sharing in her press release, “I’ve always tried to write from the most genuine place that I can, but, lately, and with this record, I’ve been working on sharing more sides of my views and emotions.” It’s this intoxicating fusion of organic Americana sounds and lyrical genuineness that has resulted in the musician receiving both critical and commercial success. Her enigmatic songs continue to leave listeners in awe, begging for more with each and every note. “Clean” is off of her forthcoming album.
