Singer and guitarist Samantha Fish has released a new music video for her song Dream Girl, taken from her 2019 record Kill Or Be Kind. Take a look above.

The song is among the more subdued, downtempo of the tracks from the album – contrasted against the heavier tracks such as Bulletproof and Watch Them Die.

Samantha explained the track and video’s inspiration further: “Dream Girl is about trying to be something you’re not. Someone else’s ideal or fantasy. The video has ‘real-life Samantha’ looking for answers and inspiration. The heroine in the story might have all the pieces of what she’s looking to be, but she is still wandering through a fairy tale. There are no happy endings when you are trying to measure up for someone else. If you don’t own who you are, you’ll still end up lost in the woods.”

Samantha has previously spoken about the strong blues influence present in her playing, saying: “I’m never going to be a traditional blues artist, because that’s not who I am. But it’s all the blues for me. When Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf came out, what they were doing didn’t sound like anything that had been done in Blues before. You’ve got to keep that kind of fire and spirit. I’m never going to do Muddy Waters better than Muddy Waters, so I have to be who I am and find my best voice.”

Fish is currently scheduled to be hitting the road in March 2021, embarking on a run of UK dates starting in Edinburgh.
