Today’s Discovery for Thursday, April 9 comes from New York. Samantha Urbani was the former lead singer of a New York group called Friends. She also has done many collabs with Dev Hynes (AKA Blood Orange). Yesterday, she released her debut single, “1 2 3 4”, which possesses more than just a tinge of 80’s pop. Urbani wrote and co-produced the track, playing most of the instruments, while Hynes lends piano and horn arrangements. The Madonna references are heavy in this track, and with Hynes in her tool bag, Urbani is certainly one to keep an eye on.
