Samarah is known for her glitchy electronics, manipulated beats, whispering vocals and elegant arrangements.
Excerpt from Igloo Magazine:
"Samarah's sound is very rarefied, her warm voice resonates among tiny clicks, tapping rhythms and warped melodies. Very simple elements that build tiny moving moments, "Six For Seven" and "Sleep So Heavy" are probably the best: the former is surrounding and soulful, while the latter is a spooky, alluring whisper. Don't expect any technicalities nor weird DSP effects, the aim here is to achieve the maximum result with bare minimum equipment. This is not an easy job, unless whoever is at the controls has the proper skills, and this is for sure the case with Samarah: the demonstration comes from tracks like "Disconnected," where only a couple of minutes of piano and micro-noises impress the listener with their magnetic catchiness. She is irresistible again when she touches epic chords like in "What You Hold Dear," a really stunning piece of music."
Samarah began playing piano at the tender age of seven and experimented with various orchestral instruments and choir during her childhood. By thirteen she was composing her own songs and later on started a band. She played her first gig at a local bar when she was fifteen. In the late 90's she discovered electronic music through the rave scene and was infactuated with the new sounds. Inspired, she bought her first computer and got her hands on any production software she could and began acquiring synthesizers, samplers and drum machines. The result was a dreamy, fluttering minimal sound that floats somewhere between IDM, experimental and trip hop.
Since, she has released for Minneapolis Ltd, Zod Records, Belladonna, Nishi and Electronical and performed alongside artists Andreas Tilliander, Cepia, Pressboard, Large Number, Tiki Obmar, and more.
