Samarkind : Debut ‘Sun Stroke Heart’

New hard rock blues band SAMARKIND’s lead single ‘Sun Stroke Heart’ doesn’t miss a beat. Wasting no time introducing itself with locked down grooves, layers of quality soundscapes and stunning, memorable melody hooks weaving a tapestry throughout the track. Classic yet undeniably modern in its delivery, this is a true musical treat for rock fans.

The multi-national group, which features charismatic Irish frontman David Paul Byrne (formally singer for successful hard rock band Assassin and featured vocalist on 80’s cult movie ‘Trick Or Treat’ starring Ozzy Osbourne and Gene Simmons), showcase sublime vocals which are accompanied by the talents of sensational Polish guitarist Michal Kulbaka, Ireland’s Mark Dempsey on bass guitar, and South African born drummer Marius Appelgryn.

“Sun Stroke Heart has this uplifting vibe yet brooding undertones”, the Samarkind frontman explains, “it’s a dark tale of resentment at being let down by those close to us, particularly for me during a time when I was in Spain living a lifestyle in the sun, while underneath feeling a dark emotional pain. Although not aimed at anyone in particular, I feel the song conveys a sense of hurt that we all sometimes feel.”

Recorded at Westland Studio in Dublin with producer Alwyn Walker: Samarkind are currently putting the final touches to their debut album, with a release date set to be announced for later this year.
