Samia

Samia's ballads recall the low-lit charm of Tobias Jesso Jr or the hushed immediacy of Phoebe Bridgers. Her rock songs rev and howl with the intensity of Mitski or Hop Along. Whether the volume is up or down, the 21-year-old New York native draws from the same well of sharp-witted lyricism as forebears old and new - from Liz Phair to Patti Smith to Josh Tillman. Samia may be 21, but her songs aren't. They're the sort of emotional tantrums and last-call thesis statements that feel like they've been there forever, just waiting for someone to come around and sing them. Her knack is unique to her years: that ability to tap into youthful angst with a precocious wisdom that we seem to lose as we all get older.
