Sam Windley makes one hell of a first impression on ‘For Real This Time’

Alright, let’s not waste any time here. Sam Windley is an artist you should listen to right now. In a couple of months, we predict a whole lot of people will be talking about this name, so you should stay ahead of the pack and hop on the bandwagon early. The Central Coast singer-songwriter has, in a very short amount of time, developed a fully-formed sound brimming with charisma and incredibly addictive hooks.

With the release of her debut single For Real This Time, Windley has immediately established herself as an emerging artist to watch. So again, get around it early… we’re predicting big things.

On her debut single For Real This Time, Central Coast-based singer-songwriter Sam Windley delivers a sunny slice of indie-folk brilliance.

Throughout the new single, Sam Windley glides through a sunny concoction of folk, indie-rock, and pop to deliver something that feels simultaneously familiar and fresh. With warm, fuzzy guitar sounds and lush vocal melodies, For Real This Time will be taking over summer playlists the country over.

Reminiscent of Aussie indie-folk favourites Angie McMahon and Julia Jacklin, the new tune possesses an immediately infectious charm. We’ve had the track spinning on repeat ever since we first laid ears on it, and once you’ve given the track its first spin, we guarantee you’ll have it spinning on repeat as well.

These still may be early days for Sam Windley, but judging by the quality of what we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more great tunes. In the meantime, do yourself a favour and listen to the new single above.
