The single was well received by fans and critics alike. Stavanger Aftenblad gave a rave review of the song. Time to Wake Up also received some airplay at local radio stations.
2018 proved to be a busy year for Samana Rising. The band got invited to appear on a local student tv show made by the University of Stavanger, called ‘’Sweetspot’’ where they were interviewed and performed the songs, Mountains and Leave Me, live in studio. This performance is available on the band’s Youtube channel.
Samana Rising spent a weekend in early February at SkamBra Studios in Kvernaland, Norway where they teamed up with producer Jørgen Manke to continue to record a few songs. The first song from this collaboration, Without Your Love, was released on April 20th, 2018. The single was included on Stavanger Aftenblad’s official Spotify playlist as one of the best new released tracks of week 17.

Dizzy was very well received and gained the attention of music blogs in the UK and USA. About this song it was said that “it’s a masterpiece of a track which you would have a hard time comparing to any other contemporary act on the scene to date”(anrfactory.com), and “wherever they are pointing their toes Samana Rising are able to deliver their own twist to the blend”(emergingindiebands.com). Geir Flatø recommended the song on Stavanger Aftenblad’s playlist on Spotify.
Samana Rising has played several live shows during 2018. Highlights are the short live set they did on the Norwegian Constitution Day at the outdoor arena at ‘’Stavanger Konserthus’’ in front of an audience of 8000 people, they played as one of the main performers of ‘’Kleppeloen’’, an outdoor one day festival in Klepp, Norway, they did a private concert for the inmates and staff at Stavanger Prison and they played “Fjåge i Vågen” which was held downtown Stavanger, on a large outdoor stage, facing the Skagen Port, with large cruiseships moored along the quayside.
2019 was a more quiet year for Samana Rising, due to the fact that lead singer Hanne Sivertsen gave birth to her first child. The band came together again in the fall, and then intensified the work on their debut album. Lyrics are written by lead singer Hanne Sivertsen, with guitarists Leif John Flornes and Vegard Pettersen composing the music. Jørgen Manke is once again producing, and the recording has taken place at the renamed studio, Storyteller Recording at Kverneland. The band enlisted a skilled horn section and backup singers on most tracks on the album, which really adds to the songs. Scheduled release is April 2020. The first single “Another Day” was released on digital streaming platforms with a music video on the bands Youtube on the 20th of March 2020. “Another Day” received critical praise and was quickly picked up by several national radio stations in Norway.

The song material on “Days Without You” is varied and reflect the band members different sources of inspiration. The overall genrè is blues rock, but you can also hear pop, soul & funk influences.
