“Time to Melt” By Sam Evian

Sam Evian has shared “Time to Melt,” the title track is lifted off his forthcoming album, available October 29th via Fat Possum Records, the track arrives with a new video. The song originally came together when Spencer Tweedy was interviewing Sam for Mirror Sound, a book that delves into the people and processes behind self-recorded music. He asked to see an example of Sam’s writing process, and after firing up a drum machine, Sam wrote the first bars of “Time to Melt.” Of the song, Sam explains “If you’re familiar with tarot, I think of it as pulling the death card in a positive way. It’s like facing the idea of death, which I think everyone thought about a lot this past year, maybe more than usual collectively.”

“It’s time to melt it’s what we do // If anything will comfort me // It’s knowing that we’ll be free”

“Time to Melt” was directed by John TerEick and filmed in the woods surrounding Sam’s home, elevates the song’s otherworldly vibe and offers a peek into Sam’s charm. Sam comments on the video: “I met a lonely alien in the woods and they taught me a jig. As the night went on they convinced me to try huffing some special kind of bug spray, which opened a wormhole vortex to another dimension.”

Sam Evians kicks off his North American tour with a full band of Brian Betancourt (bass), Michael Coleman (keys), Sean Mullins (drums), and Liam Kazar (guitar, synths), who will also open each show.
