It’s the very welcome return of next-gen one-man-band Samantics! When he made his debut in 2022 at the Art Bank the night was sold out and the audience were wowed with his honesty and incredible talent. Don’t miss him this time round. Any remaining tickets £7 on the door. Doors at 7, performance from 8/ 8.30.
Samantics is a one man machine of honesty, energy, words and noise. Using lyrics to portray his own unique vision of the world we’re all wandering, he speaks and shrieks from the centre of his erratic heart. Using a trolley full of sounds, including ukulele, bass, beats, piano, harmonies, blips and bloops and more, all brought together with loop station and sampler to create a hot pot of powerful, noisy poetry. It’s not quite hip-hop, but it’s not quite not.
Samantics grew up listening to punk bands practice in his dads living room, giving him the opportunity to experience the thrill and uppercut of live music while he sat and did his homework. However, being a more reserved, and tirelessly shy young lad back then, his passion really began with words, words he’d keep to himself in his pad, words, and poet-ry, that helped explain what he couldn’t always say. It wasn’t until years later that he discovered these words could be lyrics, and these lyrics could be life saving.
