Sam Llanas (formerly of BoDeans) - "Deja Vu" (audio) (Premiere)

The latest tune from former BoDeans member Sam Llanas, "Deja Vu", is a vibrant cut of blues-tinged rock and roll.
 

Sam Llanas (formerly of the BoDeans) is set to drop his new solo record, The Whole Night Thru, this November.
  
When he announced the album, he said, “I view The Whole Night Thru as my first ‘official’ solo record. Though I previously released two solo studio records, I had always been very careful to not compete with the BoDeans sound. But now that I’m no longer in that band, the gloves are off and this is a record that has many elements that fans of my former band love. If fans are looking for that BoDeans sound, it comes from my voice and it’s all over this record.”

As a teaser for the record, you can stream “Deja Vu” below, which displays Llanas’ affinity for blues-tinged rock and roll.

Llanas tells PopMatters about the song, “‘Deja Vu’ is a song about a nightmare in which the protagonist slowly realizes that the hellish prison he is trapped in is his own house.”



The Whole Night Thru is out on November 18th through Llanas Music.

"Fire Emblem Heroes desperately and shamelessly wants to monetize our love for these characters, yet it has no idea why we came to love them in the first place.
