When one has been the keyboard player and backing vocalist for the iconic Chris Corner and his band, IAMX, it seems a logical progression to look at a solo career. We are talking about Sammi Doll and her debut solo single, “AN OM IE“.
The single was released this month on multiple platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer as well as a very slick video on YouTube.
‘You are the enemy‘ is the line that sums up the intent of this track. Love gone wrong and the pain that follows, which will either break you, make you stronger or twist you into a unrecognisable creature.
I hear hints of Birthday Massacre in the beginning, especially vocally. There is a great balance of thoughtful moments and a powerful chorus. The guitars blend in seamlessly with the synths and overall this has a great pop sensibility to it with back bone.
Originally from the UK, Sammi has been working hard on her musical career in the US, honing her skills with the projects of other musicians. “AN OM IE“, originally titled “ENEMY“, was co-written with Sean and Juliette Beavan and this is industrial rock with the feminine touch of Sammi Doll.
