Leon Of Athens switches things up a bit with the release of his new single, “Utopia.”
The indie-pop star is well into his new album run now (second album, Xenos, is out January 19th) and we’ve gotta say, we’re pretty excited by the sounds he’s exploring on it so far.
His 2014 debut album, Global, largely stuck to the typical indie-pop sound, but “Utopia” see’s the Londoner venture in a more electronic direction.
Sticking with the usual instruments of indie, he adds a few synths and echoes to build around his sound and the product is a rousing and pretty epic, early Coldplay-like song that gives you life – this would make for the perfect running song!
The vibrant sound is something that we highly suggest the star sticking with, it’s a brilliant way of sticking to the roots of a genre he obviously loves, but it allows him to stick out from the crowd.
