A poet. An adventurer. A musician. England's Sam Frankl is a bit of everything, and his music showcases just that.
Making music since age 14, Frankl spent a lot of his life on the road. These travels led him across the U.S. and through Latin America, from Argentina to Colombia, igniting a passion for Latin rhythms and bossa nova.
His new single “Gold Rush" takes these global influences and filters them through programmed beats and looped saxophone samples to create an entirely new - and catchy - experience.
Drawing on the fate of Heygate Estate in Elephant & Castle, a housing estate in the process of being demolished a short walk from his flat, Frankl paints the sonic and lyrical image of a tenant who refuses to leave.
