Detroit-born and Los Angeles-based Sam Austins brings us his brand new massive single “Kilos“
Although Jimi Somewhere recreating a song about the fireworks and gunshots of Detroit may seem left-of-center, it’s a true testament to the transcendent quality of incredible songwriting. The original “KILOS” uses metaphors to highlight complicated forces that have shaped Austins’ young adult life, while Jimi Somewhere’s lush, lo-fi reinterpretation transforms that personal story into something altogether universal.
The surreal accompanying visual brought his words to life as he leaves a shady motel to roam the empty streets at night before joining a giant Donnie Darko-style bunny in a diner. If Frank Ocean and Johnny Greenwood collaborated, it might sound something like Sam Austins.
Sam has quietly infiltrated music, fashion, and film and television. With buzzing acclaimed tracks under his belt, including a co-write on Big Sean’s gold-selling “Wolves” [feat. Post Malone].
