We’re really proud to be able to kick off the week with the exclusive premiere of the new video from Sydney based singer-songwriter Sam Newton, “Hold You Down”.

The track is taken from Sam Newton’s upcoming album Violet Road, due on the 16th September. If you want to get your hands on “Hold You Down” it’s available as a download when you preorder Violet Road on Bandcamp.

I’m a really big fan of “Hold You Down” – it straddles the line between alt-country and straight up folk singer-songwriter perfectly. Sam Newton has come so far as a songwriter and I reckon we’re going to see big things from him over the coming months.

Check out “Hold You Down” directed by Bryce McLellan below:

Sam Newton’s September tour dates are as follows:

Thursday 1st September – Gasoline Pony, Sydney, NSW
Sunday 4th September – Petersham Bowling Club, Sydney, NSW
Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th September – Nimbin Roots, Nimbin, NSW
