Debut singles can be tough. For many artists, it takes a while to settle on a concrete sound, and therefore, debut releases often lack conviction. Wollongong based singer-songwriter Sam Allen, however, does not suffer from this issue.
With the release of his debut single Barricade, Allen has immediately established his penchant for crafting emotive and endearing indie-rock gems. We’re stoked to be premiering it for you today.

Throughout the new single, Allen glides through a heartfelt blend of indie-rock, folk, and soul to craft a sound uniquely his own. He weaves together rich instrumentation and spirited vocal delivery to build an immersive sound that will blanket your body.
