Good news from the music gods out there! Léon just released a new track after months of drought. It’s been a a year or so since “Tired of Talking” was released making it in big in music blogs. She was instantly an artist to watch, music production and songwriting was just perfect. “Treasure” and “Nobody Cares” were the singles that came after letting us in deep into her breakup story. It was one of the best EP from an upcoming artist in the past year. She’s Swedish which is why her success is no surprise, evidently more and more artists, DJs and producers are hitting our radios. Best example would be Tove Lo and Max Martin.
“Think About You” doesn’t disappoint at all, the same haunting pain and awesome instrumentals. If this is just a taste of what her album would be like, then we are in for a ride.
Take a listen
Here’s a live bonus
If you watch Game of Thrones, you probably have seen this guy around. Yes! Greyworm is Raleigh Ritchie. One of my picks for artists to watch this year. His album “You’re a man now, Boy” is kind of a mix tape of his songs,showcasing different sounds but all nonetheless awesome!
The GREATEST is probably the best track for me as it is very relative, kind of like an anthem for us millennials.
Other songs you must check out are “Bloodsport”, “The Last Romance”, and “Cowards”.
Raleigh seems like a very cool guy if you have seen his interviews, shoots and videos. Here’s a video he directed for Topman which features “Cowards”. I do see him joining the ranks of other breakout artists so time will tell.
LÉON is back with an EP entitled “Treasure”. It includes her first and best track “Tired of Talking” plus “Nobody Cares” and two new songs. “Treasure” is the third track we are hearing from this upcoming swedish artist. Whatever heartbreak she went through or whoever wrote these songs are for sure turning these emotions into these awesome upbeat “mellow technow” songs. She should be famous by now… That’s all I can say.

The band known for “Chocolate”, “Sex” and my personal favorite “Girls” is back with their new sound plus a new look. Going for the funkier color pink as their possible album cover after their first album’s black & white theme. “Love Me” as MTVnews entitled their article will kinda take you back in time.
The sophomore album of the band has been met with good reviews. Still having their distinct synth pop style, tracks such as “Never Ending Circles” & “Leave a Trace” will leave you with nothing but chill vibes.
They also worked with Eric Prydz last year with a house track “Tether”, an awesome track you must check out.
Kanye West co-produced this track. Check out his collabs with Ed Sheeran and Lana Del Rey in the new album “Beauty Behind the Madness”.
