With summer fast approaching, many of us are searching for the perfect tunes to add to our summer playlists which make the perfect addition to road trips and tanning sessions. Well, look no further than Sam Valdez’s latest song “Palms Casino”. The tune, which is taken from Valdez’s upcoming album Take Care, is filled with desert-dazed soundscapes, dreamy vocals and warm instrumentation, offering the sounds of a warm summers day to those who hear it. Amidst the soothing sounds of this track, we are also given emotive and experience-driven lyrics which give the song a poetic depth and meaning.
When asked about the meaning of the track, Valdez stated it was about “letting yourself act on impulse and just owning the consequences. It’s about wanting to evolve and find excitement without chaos, but knowing it’s okay to mess up and explore your curiosities too.”
Having grown up in Nevada and basing herself in LA, the singer looks to her childhood, such as her experiences as a child violinist that was surrounded by classical music, to inform her work. Blending the genres of indie-rock and pop together, Sam Valdez offers a unique and beautiful sound that is sure to enchant those who hear it.
