Both songs feature on her 2020 debut album ‘The Baby’, an incredible first record that explores the existential angst of young adulthood. For ‘Stellate’, Samia turns out the lights in her studio to create a spellbindingly atmospheric performance as the lyrics try to make sense of old traumas.
Her session concludes with ‘Triptych’, which is performed from a dimly lit leather couch. The track depicts the end of a relationship and trying to make sense of your actions in the aftermath with bruising honesty. The young artist fixes her gaze on the camera during her Home Sessions performance as she shares the song’s emotional story.
