Sam Johnson – Stuck Under The Surface

“Stuck Under the Surface’ is a song born from the ashes of a long term relationship that didn’t quite work out. It came to fruition in the wake of a break up and felt like a very necessary form of catharsis. I knew it had to be honest if it were to be convincing, but naturally with that came a level of difficulty and unease that I’d rarely had to deal with when writing songs before. However, rather inevitably, it’s gone on to become one of my favourite songs on the EP. I’ve realised that its overarching message is one of openness. I found closure in being able to write this song, when previously feeling unable to articulate my feelings or ‘stuck under the surface’, and I hope others will be touched similarly when listening.”
