“I'm so stoked for HOMEWORK to be out,” Sam Fischer says. “Since releasing 'This City' and seeing the way my own vulnerability became an outlet for my fans, I've spent the better part of the last 4 years writing as honestly and opening as I could, and that became HOMEWORK. It's the study of myself, moments that have defined my life and stories that will hopefully give words to your own.”
Sam Fischer explained track by track for the EP below.
- “This City”
“The day I wrote this song I was having a tough time. I had become disillusioned with my personal identity, my connection to music and with LA in general, as if I wanted LA more than LA wanted me. LA can be a really lonely place. When you're up you're on top of the world and when you're down it's devastating, but we're all here for a reason so we don't like talking about how hard it gets because we blindly believe it'll all work out in the end. I think This City can be a safe place to feel those feelings and hopefully feel less alone."
“Letting someone down or being disappointing and not meeting expectations have always been a factor in my life,” he said. “Maybe it's my own over-thinking and not reality, but that's what it's felt like in my relationships, both romantic and personal, to what my mum thinks of me to what society thinks of me. The story of 'The Usual' is about the day I got dropped set as a breakup. With all of my songs, I want the listener to feel seen and heard. To not feel so alone, like there's someone else out there who knows what they're going through. Mostly, I want the listener to feel like they understand themselves better with each song and that I understand them as well.”
“Everybody's Got Somebody”
“Everybody's Got Somebody is like a live couples therapy session. It's acknowledging your own toxic behaviour and confronting the relationship or reality that messed you up. I've been burned quite a lot in my life; professionally, personally, romantically, so whoever I was before all of that is long gone, and through it all, the trust issues, the insecurities, the hardship, I am who I am and I'm grateful I've found someone to love the messed up version of myself.”
“I Got To Live”
“I Got To Live was the very last song I wrote in 2019. I had just signed my record deal and was about to (or so I thought) spend the next year on a whirlwind ride with This City. I was going to do things I'd only ever dreamed about and because I have a tendency to focus on the little things that go wrong instead of right, I wanted to make sure that I really lived in every single moment, because you never know when it's all going to get taken away. Little did I know, a global pandemic would break out and put a very heavy pause on all of those plans. Nonetheless, this song still means a lot to me and even though life looks different right now, I'm still trying to be as present as possible every single day because we're all going to look back on this time when we're 91 years old and talk about it like it was yesterday.”
“I wrote 'Ready' as if I was staring at myself in the mirror and asking when I was going to be ready to accept myself for who I am. It's not been the easiest couple of years, getting dropped felt like a bad break up and it hurt like hell. It took a long time to get to where I am now mentally and emotionally. 'Ready' is the message to myself to say it's all in my head and no one's going to love me the way I can love me if I let myself.
“People I Don't Know”
“'People I Don't Know' – I talk shit about people I don't know and I'm sure people talk shit about me too but neither of us know it. I caught myself talking shit and I really didn't like how it felt. I don't know what anyone else is going through and honestly, we're probably all going through the same stuff, so by talking shit about someone else I'm projecting my own fears and insecurities on them. I talk shit about other people to make myself not feel as far behind others. 'People I Don't Know' is a simple honest human truth and I'm sure I'm not alone in it.”
