We found our way to the Hilton rooftop pool (life is sooo hard) in downtown Austin during South by Southwest for this picturesque interview with “magma pop” sensation, Samsaya. This girl is seriously the bomb.
Before SXSW, I was totally obsessed with her music (everyone should get after her track “Stereotype”), and now I’m totally obsessed with her as a person. It’s really refreshing to meet such an enthusiastic and – for lack of a better word – “chill” artist. No ego. Just a love for what she does and an excitement to talk about it (Samsaya, if you’re reading this…you’re so awesome let’s have tea or something soon?).
This interview was seriously just a damn delight. Check it out for yourself, and watch us talk about her album Bombay Calling, her views on stereotyping, and the lethality of pop music.
Emily is an over-enthusiastic lover of music, books, movies, fashion, and culture in general. Her love of music spans across all genres (what is a genre anymore? she waxes poetic to herself), though she was nursed on true punk and will never understand “redneck country” music – tractors are not and cannot be sexy. Emily currently lives in Brooklyn, NY and considers herself to be a great wit, though she is still waiting on validation from a credible source.
