Brisbane three-piece LEØ drop the first single ‘Us’ off their upcoming debut EP ‘Young’, exploring electronic sounds and looking inwardly on past relationships.
The band’s vocalist and guitarist Chloe Pilkington offers her saccharine vocals while the rest of the band anchor the track with steady, pulsating drum and synth loops. Pilkington’s vocals hang softly in a falsetto but her emotional vulnerability adds a pleasant depth. The track also heralds a new sound for the band, as they explore their original sound in an electronic space.
“Us gave LEØ a whole new music path to go down. It was our first real ‘electronic’ song, with the main focus on the drums. Josh had just made up a new drum/synth loop and left it on repeat so I could write to it, while him and Callum went out to buy food. 20 minutes later, they had sushi for me and I had lyrics for them.” – LEØ
