Blisshouse. has released his new single, “All Night“, a dreamy, pensive new track that finds him attempting to move on and start over. Carried by dreamy instrumentals, crisp bass lines and emotive lyrics, “All Night” can be heard now below.
Speaking of the song, Blisshouse. singer-songwriter and producer Sam Smisek said that the song “came about during came to be after a couple pretty notable changes in my life. I moved back to my mom’s house in my hometown after living in Seattle for two years, along with parting ways with someone who i had been in a long term relationship with, and grown a lot with. At first, this new reality felt fresh and the familiarity of being home was comforting. Soon enough, though, the all too familiar feelings of doubt, restlessness and depression started to set in.”
Blending equal parts alternative pop, hip hop, and rock, singer-songwriter and producer Blisshouse. incorporates distorted, woozy guitars and energetic, hard-hitting percussion inspired by the underground punk scene he grew up in with elements of of hip hop through 808’s and candid, direct vocals, the effective simplicity and immediacy of pop-inspired songwriting and the emotional, intimate connection that indie music emanates through honest, vulnerable lyrics and DIY instrumentation and production.
Teaching himself how to produce his own music in his studio apartment, Smisek started making music under Blisshouse. in 2019, after the dissolve of his previous band, post-hardcore outfit More To Monroe decided to split up. Soon after beginning this new endeavor, Smisek moved to Seattle from his hometown of Frederick, Maryland, ready to carve a new path for himself. Only months after moving, Covid struck, leaving Smisek cooped up in the house with ample time to hone in on his sound.
While his first album, Home, drew inspiration from ambient alternative rock/indie songs and trip hop, sophomore LP Confused & Conflicted meshed elements of grunge and hip hop, Smisek is now making songs that unapologetically incorporate any genre or sound he’s inspired by at any given moment. The first single of this new era of Blisshouse., ‘All Night’, was written alongside Josh Strock, who co-wrote and co-produced ‘Sid & Nancy’ off of Machine Gun Kelly’s latest LP ‘Mainstream Sellout’. The song is just the first taste of what is to come for Blisshouse.
