Nerve Leak – Alone

Nerve Leak is Sam Friedman, an electronic producer and singer/songwriter based in Brooklyn. We introduced him to our readers in one of our latest Going Inbox columns, sharing the title track from his upcoming debut Disconnected. Today is time to discover another excerpt from it, a new song called Alone. Heavily influenced by the sound of guys like Jamie xx and James Blake, this electronic piece is driven by thumping drums and enriched by stretched synth lines and hazy vocals

Sam said in a nice interview to The 405: “When I was writing ‘Alone’, I wanted to combine the euphoria of dance music with the sorrow of lovelorn lyrics. I chose a house-inflected kick drum, armed with percussive bells, skyward synths, and reverb-blurred 808 drum samples, to give the song a dance angle.
