sam perry’s solo output as zen mantra touches on his collaborative work with the venerated yumi zouma, but pop constructs are often instead filtered through a distinctly darker, more pensive lens.  on “second skin,” the first single from his forthcoming self-titled album, perry weaves melancholic hooks through an infectious psychedelic texture, one that outwardly flirts with optimism but is ultimately grounded by a series of unanticipated dissonances.  zen mantra is out april 15th via flying nun records; listen to “second skin” below.
