AUDIO: Sam Whitten – “Playing Alive”

Singer-songwriter Sam Whitten is out with a new EP. It’s five songs that encompass hazy, emotive indie rock tinged with post-punk and noise pop. Whitten displays a knack for slow but sure buildups in his songs; for example, opening tune “On the Dot” begins with gentle crooning before erupting into shouting and distortion. “At Least I’m Fucked” has a similar climactic formula that rumbles with texture and moodiness, and then the final track “Skeleton” wraps things up with a resonant howl. Sam Whitten takes us on a spin within his mind with “Playing Alive.”
