SAM RUSSO spielt eine Mischung aus Folk und Indierock und veroeffentlicht sein neues Album "Back To The Party" am 27. Maerz bei Red Scare Industries. Anbei stellt der Songwriter aus Haverhill mit "The Basement" einen weiteren Song der Platte mitsamt Videoclip vor. RUSSO kommentiert:
“The Basement is a song about feeling left behind. I wrote it while working at my old school. I went into the file room and dug out my old photo and my college record and looked at the pictures of all my friends and just felt so amazingly lonely and lost. Musically I wanted to write something they would like. Something to make them feel transported back to school. Chino Moreno style. The song is an apology, a celebration, a way of forgiving yourself.
The video was so much fun to make. Me, my girlfriend Clare and my good buddy Swaby shot it in sequence in one day at a bunch of spots all over my hometown. Just a lonely ghost looking for a home. Garth Vickers edited it and he saved the best for last because you get to see me break my wrist in the final shot. Enjoy!”
