Remember when Sammy Hale featured on Third Outing as the "love child of Father John Misty and Lana Del Rey that grew up listening to Lou Reed and Johnny Cash"? Now he's back with his first ever video release Become Blue from the upcoming Mini-LP Hymns And Whims...
...and it's a belter of a track. Whistle along with the travelling man Sammy Hale as he takes you through the streets of New Orleans on a Halloween evening to the sounds he describes as "sort of a chill Velvet Underground type vibe". We challanged Sammy Hale to tell us exactly what he wants, to tell us exactly who he is, to tell us exactly what makes his music unique; and with this release he has answered each and every last one our questions. It only took him a few months, but with the release of Become Blue Sammy Hale shows that his style is the soundtrack for those who just want to get lost. Full respect with this 9/10 effort.
