It's a stark, solo performance...

Brixton's Samuel Bedford has an urge to create.

Someone who feels life a little too keenly, this tumult of emotions needs to go somewhere, so he translates it into music.

Recently releasing new single 'Simmer' under the name Cagework, it's a remarkable piece of lo-fi songwriting, featuring wire-thin guitar lines that clench down on permanent truths.

Samuel explains: "'Simmer' is a reflection of how nothing is really permanent. I wrote it a year or so ago, at a time when I was in a weird living situation and my friendship group was dissolving around me. I actually tried to pitch it for a Netflix drama but it was quickly brushed over."

Teaming up with Matt Martin for a new live session, this slimmed down, pared back, incredibly intense recording gets to the heart of the matter.

Tune in below.
