Let Your Dark Side Out To Play With Esther Joy’s Brooding “Samgel”

The London singer-producer provides the soundtrack to your twisted fantasies.

"The track 'Samgel' is based on a dark and primal character that has been a recurring presence in my life," Esther explained to The FADER in an email. The video is a visual portrayal of the characters and myself as narrator in-between them. Samgel has been a massive influence in my writing for the upcoming EP — I can hear her (sometimes him) in most of the songs. This track is the ultimate expression of it all, and something that I can carry out my favourite pastime of raging-and-crying-whilst-also-pulling-some-shapes to.” Watch above.
