Dream-pop Sydney-siders I Know Leopard have just dropped a mesmerising new single ahead of their shows with Montaigne this July/August.
‘Let Go’ is a kaleidoscope of ethereal backing vocals, magical synths, groovy bass and anxious lyrics. Merging a retro sound with a smooth and fresh pop structure, the track is charmingly warm and fuzzy, as it layers catchy backing vocals with singer Luke O’Loughlin’s sweeping pop melodies, which see his voice grow from a deep rich tone to a sweet, floating falsetto. The accompanying video is similar in reflection – a cinematic torch that tracks and sheds light on the suburban lifestyle and pressures felt by youth – a dreamy narration with a darker side.
Following last year’s dark-pop single ‘Rather Be Lonely‘, this latest offering is a delicious taste of what the future holds for the pop quartet. Catch them supporting Montaigne across the country next month, details here.
