SAM DICKINSON, “All We Are”
The evolution of UK pop/soul singer/songwriter Sam Dickinson began late last year after a five year absence with his EP From The Glass House Pt. 1 and its infectious single “Wild Sun”, which got to #5 on my personal chart in its Handbag House remix. His new single from Pt. 2 of the From The Glass House trilogy is “All We Are”, which you already heard in Pt. 1 in its acoustic form. To me, if you can sing a great song well in its acoustic version, then you’ve already won me over as you’ve presented a song in its rawest, least produced form. So now we have “All We Are” in its more well-rounded and shaped variation, and its touching words about unity radiate through the production. It will make you think of Erasure in their “A Little Respect”/”Chains Of Love” late 80’s days, and what more of a sparkling throwback can there be than that? Sam’s voice stays in his effortless higher register, and the pointed phrase of “all we are is blood and skin” resonates through to the end. “All We Are” is a beautiful song with perfect timing and I hope many of you will take the time to enjoy it multiple times, and check out the video above. For those of you in northern England, you can watch for a Sam Dickinson live show closer to you very soon.
