New York City based songwriter Sam Setton continues his rich vein of form with new alt-pop bob ‘Wine’. It’s brooding and introspective, much like his last single ‘Santiago’. Setton tends to focus his writing on the complex machinations of romantic relationships, with the new single following this tried and tested technique. On ‘Wine’ Setton explores the toxic side of love, the pain, arguments and frustration that accompany it. The production is booming, with plucked synths, rhythmic bass lines and drums that roll steadily under Setton’s soaring chorus melody.
“Wine was absolutely one of my favorite songs to write and record. Watching the track go from a slow ballad vibe to a total ‘bop’ was really really fun. I want listeners to feel me on this song. Dance to it! But also listen closely to the story I’m trying to tell” – Sam Setton
