After his triumphant showing at SXSW last month, earning international radio airplay and a co-sign from Danger Mouse via the producer's "Jukebox" playlist, New York City-via Switzerland indie rocker Sam Himself fully ushers in his second act today with the release of his Nobody EP. Preceded by teaser singles in the blissfully fuzzed-out title track and follow-up confessional anthem "Heartphones," the six-track EP features unreleased gems "199X," "Bad As A Mile," "About A Place," and "New York Decisions."

With the sophomore set, Sam trades the troubadour anthems of his debut EP Songs In D for a wholly new sound that fits somewhere between the "Born To Run" spirit of Bruce Springsteen, and the DIY ethos of Kurt Vile and Deerhunter, with his rich baritone channeling Future Islands' Samuel T. Herring. The EP -- recorded at Strange Weather Studios -- is inspired by the ups and downs of his own journey as a Swiss indie artist making it in a new city, with a little help from his tight knit artist's community in Brooklyn.  

"If you’ve ever chased a dream and bet the farm on it, you know the moments of deep doubt that come with true commitment," Sam explains. "I tried to capture that experience of losing faith in your own pursuit, where you cross-examine yourself like a lover in crisis: How much are you willing to pay for the thing you can’t live without? How much will it cost you?"
