Sam Scherdel - Balloon 

Release Date: Out Now

As Spring starts to arrive and thoughts turn to festival season, you can't help but start to wonder what the festival anthem of the summer will be and, well, I think I may have just stumbled across it. Sam Scherdel's Americana meets folk style is matched with Yorkshire grit on new single 'Balloon' which floats in full of energy and expectation like a mix of Springsteen and Mumford & Sons before the chorus kicks in with a crowd pleasing four count and the kind of melody that even the most drunken reveler will be able to sing back at the stage. Scherdel's voice has the power and warmth to hold a crowd and with songs like this he has the bangers to do it as well. Bring on the summer.
