Should I change myself, SINGLE: SAM VALDEZ – Clean [+ Toothache]
by Walter Price
“Should I change myself“, is a sympathetic and vastly relatable string of words in the recent single, “Clean”, from LA-based songwriter Sam Valdez. A lush and crawling track relying heavily on the weighty emotions of the singer’s memories, all laid bare for us to witness. A sparse production adds to this shadowy lament on the unwavering magnetism of self-destructive behaviors. Being seduced by chaos and finding solace in the cynicism and despair makes for a deeply introspective song and a dreamlike charmer, at that.
You can stream “Clean” as well as “Toothache”, both from a forthcoming album, now at the Global Texan. And make sure to add these to your sad-songs-make-me-happy playlist.

“I’ve always tried to write from the most genuine place that I can, but, lately, and with this record, I’ve been working on sharing more sides of my views and emotions,” – Sam Valdez
