Further establishes Samica's credentials as a singer-songwriter with an alternative R&B edge and a voice to die for.

We've covered Samica's music before. "Take Me Back" is the lush and passionate follow-up to her single "Wreck" from earlier this year, and explores the wistful safe-space of a relationship on its last legs. This melodic and soul-inspired vocal performance delivers vintage Samica, as "Take Me Back" transports the listener to a simpler and less uncertain time when the stress and doubt of a doomed love felt like a big deal.

After a successful debut release last year with her track "Alright," Samica now counts fellow rising R&B artist Jelani Aryeh as a friend and collaborator, and along with a successful video release for the remix of "Wreck" on Mickey Singh's YouTube network (Tree House), is well on her way to being among the first nationally-recognized Indian American pop artists. "Take Me Back" is a polished and inviting exploration of romance and vulnerability that features deep electronic beats, a jazzy hook on electric guitar, and Samica's intense blend of vocal personality and raw emotion. This smooth indie-pop tell-all further establishes Samica's credentials as a singer-songwriter with an alternative R&B edge and a voice to die for.

This song is featured on our Soul playlist.
