The song of the week is “Farther Away”, a song by singer and songwriter Sam Valdez. I find it so dreamy (dreamy is a word I often use to describe a song, I know!) and relaxing. It makes me think of peaceful summer nights, even if the song is about the way unexpected life shifts can change and shape our life.
Sam Valdez is a musician who grew up in Nevada and is now Los Angeles based. Her music is a fusion of shoegaze and American folk to which she adds her own sound.
In the video, directed by Nicholas Petty, there’re just Valdez and the desert.
