Samarkind Debut ‘Sun Stroke Heart’
Samarkind have released a teaser of what’s yet to come from their 1st studio album due later this year. A classy and polished single ‘Sun Stroke Heart’ has been released to wet the appetite and it does that beautifully. With an addictive hook it immediately grabs your attention, the sultry & gritty vocal style of front man David Paul Byrne and a sexy little solo drives home the quality within.
The multi-national group, which features charismatic Irish frontman David Paul Byrne (formally singer for successful hard rock band Assassin and featured vocalist on 80′s cult movie ‘Trick Or Treat’ starring Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons), showcase sublime vocals which are accompanied by the talents of sensational Polish guitarist Michal Kulbaka, Ireland’s Mark Dempsey on bass guitar, and South African born drummer Marius Appelgryn.
“Sun Stroke Heart has this uplifting vibe yet brooding undertones”, the Samarkind frontman explains, “it’s a dark tale of resentment at being let down by those close to us, particularly for me during a time when I was in Spain living a lifestyle in the sun, while underneath feeling a dark emotional pain. Although not aimed at anyone in particular, I feel the song conveys a sense of hurt that we all sometimes feel.”
Recorded at Westland Studio in Dublin with producer Alwyn Walker: Samarkind are currently putting the final touches to their debut album, with a release date set to be announced for later this year.
