Sammy Rae Shares Indie Piano Ballad “Living Room Floor”
August 28, 2020 BY Nettwerk
Brooklyn’s Sammy Rae shares new track “Living Room Floor,” an indie confessional piano ballad that hearkens back to the pre-pandemic days of relentless touring and crashing on living room floors. It’s an anthem about finding comfort in what you’ve got and making the most out of a little.
Sammy Rae says “Living Room Floor” is “a song about finding home and contentment in the present moment. Looking hopefully towards the future without discrediting the magic and importance of the present. It is a story-song recounting coming of age moments in the living rooms of apartments gone-by.”
Watch Sammy Rae & The Friends Perform “Living Room Floor” Live:
“swoony, euphoric jazz-rock, pitched somewhere between Lake Street Dive and Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, with Bowers’s soulful vocals at center stage.” — Boston Globe
“easily one of the most captivating live performers around … a tough-to-pin-down swirl of jazz, blues, rock, world and disco vibes, but don’t get too caught up in trying to wrap your head around any sort of concrete Pitchfork definition – just go and see for yourself what the magic’s all about. (‘Cause the magic factor is concrete.).” – Brightest Young Things
“the energetic crew plays an eclectic blend of styles, ranging from funk-inflected pop to plaintive folk-rock to raging rock and roll.” – Seven Days
“Samantha Bowers leads the type of music revolution in which everyone is welcome and anyone can join.” – BK Reader
Sammy Rae’s sound is a mélange of her influences, rooted in classic rock, pop, R&B and soul, and sprinkled with hints of blues and jazz. Complete with a rhythm section, horn section, keyboards, and two backup singers, Sammy Rae & The Friends have delivered their high-energy, spirited and unrestrained shows to sold-out audiences in the Northeast and beyond, most recently including New York City’s Le Poisson Rouge, Boston’s The Sinclair, Burlington’s Higher Ground and Chicago’s Schubas.
“Living Room Floor,” along with previously released singles—the spirited “Whatever We Feel” and the glamorous “Jackie Onassis”—will be featured on Sammy Rae’s forthcoming EP, details TBA.
