Singer-songwriter Sam Creighton is back with her latest release, “Someone Else’s Party”. The driving pop ballad features an anthemic post-chorus with Sam’s dynamic vocals being the main attraction.
Sam says, “the song has sweeping melodies with production that take you on an emotional journey inside the mind of someone who has imposter syndrome.”
This release is special for Sam because she wants listeners to know that they are the most important player in their own life. She says, “I never want to be the center of attention because I never want to come across as cocky or full of myself. However, because of that, I dive to the deepest opposition of that and begin to ignore and diminish my own goals, aspirations, and even accomplishments. I want people to ponder the idea that it is possible to be an amazing friend while still giving the energy to support yourself.”
In addition to the song, Sam is sharing the accompanying music video. Directed by Lily Judge, the music video perfectly brings to life Sam’s vision. Sam wanted the video to have a physical manifestation of everyone’s celebration, and she chose to do so by using the perfect party symbol, balloons.
She says, “When I walk into the house, I am empty-handed. Throughout the different parties, you see me excitedly celebrating everyone’s successes. However, as I interact with the party’s guests, I take on the weight of their celebration as my very own (since I am unable to create it for myself) in the form of their balloons.”
As the song climaxes in the bridge, Sam is overwhelmed by all of the balloons. She leaves the party with dozens of balloons, all from different celebrations, and she looks up realizing that she has left the party by herself, celebrating her friends all day, but she seems content with the choice, almost as if she has learned to celebrate herself, as well as her friends.
