When Sam Williams’ voice hits you, you’ll do a double-take. His new song “Can’t Fool Your Own Blood” is one of the year’s first wonderful surprises ─ I put on a random Spotify playlist, and it stopped me in my tracks. “You can lie to a liar / Go ahead and flame the fire,” he sings.
Williams’ scruffy vocals lure you in, and you stay for the pulverizing lyrics. “Burn down, everything you love / You can steal from a thief / I’ll act like I believe / But you can’t fool your own blood,” he continues. He packs every emotion he possibly can, and you feel it deep down in your own soul.
