Wake Up Leo has been whispered around the UK’s live circuit for a while. Since sharing a stage with The Frattellis, Leo has secured himself a reputation for the theatrically unexpected. With his thematic shows, complete with soundbites and video clip interludes, Leo’s performances are a treat to the senses. The music is a whirlwind of ideas opening up a window to Leo’s perspective, the tracks reflect his thoughts towards an increasingly split world.
Lead single ‘Nowhere to Go’ describes the politicisation of youth culture, caught in the tides of change. The song hints at the radicalisation of children in Syria and the swathes of angry teens egger to disenfranchise austerity at all cost. Over all the song describes an increasingly younger loss of innocence
The EP highlights a lean towards extreme views and the death of moderate thought. With political, religious and lifestyle stances split into many apposing fractions, combining the theatrics of David Bowie with the synth pop of the Killers, Leo’s ‘Devolution’ keeps the listener immersed in thought from start to finish. This month Leo is travelling on tour from the south of the England and finishing his journey in style at Maidstone’s ‘Hops and Harvest Festival’ where he’ll join Newton Faulkner,Star Sailor, The Hoosiers to name a few.
