Samia's latest single, "Milk," is a gentle, tuneful ballad, with a gut-wrenching message. Of the song, the 21-year-old songwriter says "I was dealing with an eating disorder while my grandmother/family's matriarch was dying. I was so mad at myself; it felt hypocritical to be encouraging someone else to fight for her life while i was willfully taking years off of my own. A lot of people have eating disorders and everybody's grandparents die so i didn't feel entitled to the deep sadness i felt. I do now!" This morning Brooklyn Vegan premiered the Tess Lafia directed video.

Earlier this summer, Samia shared "21," which The FADER called "an electric folk banger about post-teenage angst" and Pitchfork said "Samia's lyricism shares the burning adolescent yearning and critique of idol worship of Lorde's 'Perfect Places.'"

"Samia's indie rock songs are searing accounts of her feminist frustration and daily anxiety. Armed with a deep and blistering voice, she is an ideal narrator for stories about being loud and angry about societal expectations and the need for validation." – Pitchfork

"Knife-sharp lyricism… A raw, electric energy runs through the veins of New York songwriter Samia's music." – The FADER

"Samia's once-in-a-generation voice coupled with devastating lyrics makes her destined for greatness." –Bandcamp
