“Don’t know how to get my feelings out there. Don’t know how to clear the mess that’s in my head. Far too much is going on that can’t be said, not that I don’t wanna. Something’s buzzing but I’m scared to share it. Scared to talk and give a part of me away and they’ll keep it. Get control of what I say. When words fail, when I can’t speak, when I can’t say how I feel, I still got this to talk to you. My ukulele tells the truth, can’t you see this is me?” – lyrics

‘When Words Fail’ contains a relatable narrative and ear-pleasing vocals. The likable tune possesses lush instrumentation flavored with a mellow indie-pop vibration. Furthermore, “When Words Fail” serves as a tasty appetizer to what listeners can expect to hear on Lara Samira’s upcoming debut EP, entitled, “phosphenes,” set to be released soon in 2021.

“Never gonna share my secrets, never gonna break my heart or bail on me. Pick you up and let you tell my story.”

“I felt like I could barely go outside, even the simplest task felt like too much for me to handle. But my ukulele always made me feel safe, even outside.” – Lara Samira explained

Do you know that feeling, when you rub your eyes a little too hard and suddenly you see this explosion of colors and patterns? Those are phosphenes. And this is how it should feel when you’re listening to Lara Samira’s EP: a light that emerged from the darkness to create a space full of colors without any external influence.

Lara describes her forthcoming EP as a box and in it is a collection of letters. Every song, six in total, contains a personal message that is now ready to be sent out into the world. Together with her successful single, “something i can’t fake,” Lara Samira has found a favorable spot within the indie-pop landscape.
