As lead vocalist Trey Privott explains, “Simplify” is about “the beauty of existence after ridding yourself of everything and understanding yourself more so after.” The song was inspired in part by a Henry David Thoreau quotation (“Our life is frittered away by detail — simplify, simplify.”), and is one of several Samsara tracks addressing the pitfalls of capitalism. Sonically, “Simplify” coalesces the band’s myriad influences, like funk, soul and gritty rock and roll. (American Songwriter)
