“Timmy’s Prayer” – Sampha

There is something almost unbearably vulnerable about the way Sampha’s voice trembles — as if at any moment he might break down and have to leave the room. Despite releasing a relatively acclaimed EP in 2013, the London based singer/producer is probably best known for his work with fellow London producer SBTRKT and angsty Canadian, Drake. After a long hiatus however, Sampha returns to solo work with his new single, “Timmy’s Prayer.” “I’m messed up/ I know now,” Sampha croons across a simple synth and distorted drum kick. We don’t know who Timmy is but, he doesn’t sound too happy.
