 Samia - Scout - Bio

Samia’s 2020 debut album, The Baby, was a testament to her impressive vocal might, irresistible tunefulness andvulnerable lyricism, both clever and illuminating in equal measure. Drawing widespread acclaim from Pitchfork,Stereogum, NPR, NME, The Sunday Times, and others, the LP more than delivered following the promise ofearly singles like 2018’s “Django” and 2019’s “Ode to Artice.” After emerging as one of the most excitingup-and-comers in indie rock, Samia released a companion album this past January titled The Baby Reimagined, acollection of covers and remixes featuring Bartees Strange, Anjimile, Field Medic, Palehound, former tourmateDonna Missal, and more.

Samia spent much of 2020 in self-reection, and she also made various life changes that left her feeling moreearnest and centered. “I got back into therapy and started thinking about boundaries, I moved to Nashville, I didyoga sometimes,” she says. During this time, she wrote a handful of songs that make up Scout, a new EP outdigitally on July 23. “These were pretty much the only four songs that came naturally during this time, but Ithink they really mirror my emotional experience this past year,” Samia says.

While The Baby leaned more on self-deprecating humor, Scout was born out of a need to “honor feeling secure inwhat [she] had to say.” Lead track “As You Are” revels in the preciousness of unconditional love (“Whensomebody loves you / They take you as you are,” she belts in the chorus) and oats delicately with graceful vocalsand steady percussion. Staticky guitar number “Show Up” is an acknowledgment of personal growth, and itsunwavering desire for wholesome joy really tugs at the heartstrings (“Nothing could ever stop / my ass fromshowing up / to sing another song for the people I love”). The EP is packed with reverence for life’s ups anddowns, but more than anything, it’s an ode to loved ones.

The compassionate glow of this EP partially stems from her new Nashville surroundings, as well as her recentexperiences “feeling genuinely loved, making new friends, and holding onto old friendships.” There’s a palpableintimacy to these recordings, whether it’s the voicemail murmurs of “As You Are,” the heart-on-your-sleeve lyricsor the piano twinkles throughout. It’s reminiscent of that reassuring exhale in the mirror after an imperfect yetfullling day. As Samia puts it, Scout is “The Baby's slightly older sister letting her know that everything is gonnabe alright.”

The EP title is a nickname of Samia’s, and it’s a tting nod to the record’s benevolence. “My partner calls meScout,” she explains. “It's just a word that implies bravery to me. I always picture a little girl with a sash andbadges basking in her autonomy selling Samoas.” Whether you’re a girl scout trying to gain condence or anadult who needs reminders of our inability to make everyone happy (“Elephant”) or the untold power of beingthere for someone (“The Promise”), this EP is an unashamed loving nudge. - - - - - - -
