Perth electro-pop duo, Leopard Lake, launch their latest single, ‘Heart Of Yours’ on 2 March at Mojos bar in Fremantle. On the line up for the event are Haircare, Shy Panther, Special Feelings, DJ Jamie Terry from POND and DJ Chipslut as well as a special guest artist yet to be announced. Oh, how we love a surprise here at Around The Sound!
The duo, consisting of Sam Ford (music) and Storm Wyness (vocals), released their debut EP last year and have been accumulating fans ever since with their genre bending electro pop. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the duo each have some pretty handy musical form, Wyness with Perth legends Sex Panther, and Ford as producer for the likes of POND and Abbe May. Their new single brings us warped vocals, rich tones and dancing synths that tell a classic tale of the eternal fight between the mind and the heart.
Of the track, Wyness said, “'Heart of Yours' was a phone demo for months which Sam pieced together in the studio, the inspiration was to create a constant beat mimicking a heart. We wanted to make something really stripped back giving the elements that remained more relevance. It’s about trying to shed the past. Being reborn, in a new life. We slowed down one of the vocal tracks to sound somewhat otherworldly to give a different voice, like a duet but all in one person’s head."
