Samana are a pioneering duo whose debut single is to be released as part of a collaborative album with members of Unkle. The track will appear alongside artists such as Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Steve Mason and Trentmoller, and is to be released with BMG in November. The nomadic duo recently returned from a year long trip across Europe living and writing on the road. Having since taken residence in a farmhouse in the Brecon Beacons, Samana have built an analogue studio and darkroom where the duo create all of their work. Their first release 'Requiem' has already received critical acclaim, described as "Strikingly distinct with a unique, plain-stated gift for songwriting.”
We have a love affair with Circe’s Diner having first seen the female duo perform at Glastonbury Festival this year and getting them to headline our Garden Party in September. These Bristolian's weave wondrous tales of love, loss and tigers against a backdrop of Americana, roots and folk. The acoustic alchemists blend infectious melodies and dreamy harmonies with an intoxicating (and often intoxicated) performance that will most probably charm the pants off of you. We can’t wait to have them back.
