Austrian indie-pop duo LEYYA releases new single ‘Drumsolo’ from upcoming album Sauna,out via Las Vegas Records.
With Austria’s most esteemed music prize – an Amadeus Music Award under their belts, they went on to New York’s Indie Week where they cemented their status as a force to be reckoned with. LEYYA proved that they don’t rely on tried and tested patterns, but always develop their sound in order to stay fresh, modern and relevant.
‘Drumsolo’ rolls in with a steady beat set amid spirited atmospheres as Sophie Lindinger’s delicate, yet fiery vocal work fills the air in excitement. Animated bass lines and vibrant synthesizers paint a perfect portrait of LEYYA’s striking ascent, worthy of utmost attention. Layered synth pads, saxophones and complex bass patterns correspond with drummer Marco Kleebauer’s concise, yet playful approach to percussion, fills and of course, drum solos, bridging the gap between studio experiments and standard radio production.
Speaking of the single ‘Drumsolo’ Leyya comments: “Drumsolo is one of our favourite tracks of the new album – on the one hand it’s very complex (at one point it doesn’t even make sense music-theoretically) but on the other hand the melody is very catchy so you don’t notice its quirkiness – that’s what we always wanted our tracks to be like – different layers to discover depending on the listeners mood.”
