Sam Austins has shared his latest release, the new single ‘Matador’, which expands his journey into the world of pop hits.
Fusing alt-pop and R&B with his authentic tales and informed style, the track throws the concept of bullfighting into the arena of romance.
“As an artist, I’m drawn to exploring the duality of masculinity and femininity,” Sam Austins explains. “I was obsessed with the imagery and metaphor of love as a bullfight. It’s a seductive choreography and misdirection. I approached it as someone who has been vulnerable in the arena; deceived and strung along by someone with a fatal purpose.”
The new track is the first single from an upcoming project, due to drop next year.
It follows his 2021 debut mixtape, ‘HOMELESS STAR’, which was inspired by his journey from couch-hopping across the country to writing hits for Big Sean and supporting the likes of Danny Brown and Playboi Carti.
