Bruises – a beautiful ballad with a strong message
We all go through difficult times in life sometimes. And we all have inner bruises from situations, conflicts, fights and issues. But too often we try to push these memories away, we prefer not to be reminded of them. It is just that this doesn’t remove the scars… So wouldn’t it be better to take a moment and reflect upon the impact situations can have on us, instead of suppressing the pain of being reminded of it? Only then you’ll get a chance in return to let the healing process start.
Or as Samora says: “I wrote the song myself. My message is to take a moment for yourself to process damage and shame in your life. Try lo learn from moments like this and give them a place, instead of thinking them away. Too often people walk with resentment and anger, but now it is time for a change”.
It is the first time Samora releases a song internationally where she sings partly in her Surinamese mother tongue. Bruises has been produced by Swiss musician and producer Res Staudenmann, guitar player of ‘Open Season’.
Bruises is Samora’s first single in 2021. It comes with a beautiful and artistic video clip. Musically the song is different from what she has released so far – it is a ballad with Reggae and RnB attributes – but the message is in line with songs like «Free Up», «Me Na Fallin» and «Time Will Come». And it is just a start into a year with lots of releases. There is much much Reggae, Dancehall and Afrobeats coming up from Samora this year. Stay posted and be surprised by the versability, power and strength of this young, talented artist.
