“Samh is a… fabulous band. Absolutely brilliant, We like what they’re doing, love what they’re sending to us.”Alan Raw (BBC Radio)
They’ve been steadily building up a cult-like following .. receiving radio support from local stations & blogs to national outlets like BBC Leeds, BBC 6, BBC Introducing, Psychedelic Jukebox, Puls Radio (Germany) Radio X and independent station support from as far afield as Japan. Notable performances include – Edinburgh Fringe, Bath Folk, Long Division, Tramlines.
Organic lyrics with trance like repetitive rhythms and psychedelic overtones, Music written in dreams, on top of mountains and during out of body experiences. Samh’s music feels like a lucid dream and at times a super ejector seat out the reality you think you know.
