Song of the Day: Bring It All Back – Leanne Tennant

Released via LT Records, ‘Bring It All Back’ is the latest single from LEANNE TENNANT and is the second track off the forthcoming album.

The single opens with palpable energy, a bassline growling beneath punchy drums, before the UK born singer-songwriter’s confident vocals ease into the mix with a calming warmth. Conversational yet poetic, the lyrics describe a frustrating but hopeful exchange between two minds locked in contentious engagement.

‘Bring It All Back’ follows ‘Cherry Cola’ which premiered and gained high rotation on Double J Radio. Leanne has received support from the likes of Rolling Stone, Popdust, Tonspion, Iggy Magazine, AU Review (Australian Artists Of The Year), Atwood Magazine, BBC Introducing Merseyside, BBC Radio 6’s Tom Robinson and Mark Riley, Amazing Radio’s Charlie Ashcroft, Double J Radio and Triple J Unearthed. Her talents have been showcased at a number of festivals, including BIGSOUND and the 2018 Commonwealth Games and she is looking forward to bringing her live sound to the UK in May, 2020.

Song of the Day: Drifting – Escapism Refuge (ft. Zeb Samuels)

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to ESCAPISM REFUGE – one of the highly promising producers to burst up through Johannesburg’s burgeoning underground scene.

Earlier this month, he dropped an A-side double release, ‘Drifting’ and ‘Misfit’ via the indie label Deep Heads. After much deliberation, ‘Drifting’ was chosen as today’s top track for its floaty and spine-tingling combo of heavy hip-hop-esque drive and the sweet lick of the piano keys.

To date he’s released three hot EPs and won the praise of BBC 6Music’s Gilles Peterson, Soulection and Belgian’s Lefto. He also has a string of high-profile collaborations and a full LP in the pipeline…but for now, have a listen to the irresistibly good ‘Drifting.’

EP Review: Further Away: Melanie Crew

melanie-crew

It’s been a little over a year since MELANIE CREW appeared on NEW LEASE MUSIC with her debut EP Until The End, which received airplay on BBC Radio 6 and BBC Kent. Now she’s back with her second EP, Further Away, released beginning of this month.

The London-based singer/songwriter reunites with her old faithful acoustic guitar, creating that rich, folky sensation and adds some soulful and sultry spice to her usual sweet and (respectfully) girl-like vocal range.

With therapeutic and occasionally soft uptempo soundscapes, Further Away EP is the perfect bet to start the week on a soothing note –  after a rowdy weekend.
