4 / 5 Stars 
(Claire Mooney, Triple J)

“Sam has me suddenly transported from my home to the open road in the middle of nowhere, just flying down the highway on my way to nowhere. Bring it on!”
4 / 5 Stars (Declan Byrne, Triple J)

“Eventide has this anthemic sound that takes to my mind to a place that has a sea of faces crowded together in a mosh yelling the chorus up into the air.”
4 / 5 Stars (Nkechi Anele, Triple J)

“Eventide is awash with reverb guitars, with his warm upbeat vocals and sweet harmonies chiming in to keep this tune ripping along.”
(AU Review) [About ‘Eventide’]

Gadigal/ Sydney-based artist, Sam Marks, returned just the other week with his hazy indie-rock in the form of ‘Wash Over Me’. He now delivers the fitting accompanying music video, produced by his very own brother.

The fifth release from the artist sees Marks burst with his raw sincerity, layered with fuzzed-out guitars with a bluesy pace and a goosebump-inspiring chorus. Fittingly tied into the overall despondent mood of the instrumentals, Marks explores his own feeling of being disconnected and detached from reality.

With the help from Ben Marks (Dreamstate Collective), the brothers have pieced together this music video that, rather than telling a linear story, is Ben’s visual interpretation of the song – a depiction of being in one’s own unreality. Sam Marks states:

“As with my other film clips, this one was produced solely by my brother Ben. I basically handed over creative control to Ben who came up with the theme and style of the clip.” 

As the track doesn’t follow one clear linear story, as Sam Marks notes, “it is a song that explores my relationship with reality and how I can often feel disconnected from it,” Ben Marks’ intent was to, “explore a number of visual metaphors with an edge of strangeness and other-worldliness. It’s not based in the confines of reality which broadens the creative scope.”

Hitting hard like waves, the clip depicting this checked-out, dream-like state paired with the chilling feeling of the track is isolating, relatable and bittersweet.

‘Wash Over Me’ and this powerful music video is out now. Catch Sam Marks performing at Sunset Festival on December 3 with headliners including Allday, The Grogans and more.
