‘You Broke My Heart So Gently’ is about a breakup and really relays those feelings of heartbreak and grief in a real and honest way.
The track is a longtime feature of live performances from rising UK artist Sam Tompkins and shows off his vocal style which switches smoothly from singing to melodic rapping.
The accompanying video, written by Sam and co-directed with Jack Bowden, portrays many emotions and really brings the lyrics to life.
‘You Broke My Heart So Gently’ follows on from ‘Follow Suit’, an ode to Sam’s own personal struggles following the suicide of a close friend. Prior to that, single ‘Tears Beneath My Eyelids’ was used a sample from XXXTentacion.
Sam Tompkins certainly knows how to deliver true emotion in a unique and exciting way.
