Get charmed by LEAN and his soothing music.
“LEAN is about restraint – exercised poorly”, says the artist about the project himself.
The melody, composition and vocal parts are definitely not poor though. You can dive into LEAN’s music like into the warm water of an ocean… He mixes what’s best in The XX, James Blake and adds a dose of pure “Danishness” into the sound. The background melody of “Reverb Undertow” is like a fragile mist or spider web, surrounding the soft core of the song, which lies in the vocals.
This magical combination charms the listener, but also – creates a bitter-sweet feeling. The melancholy is somewhere out there, flying on the surface of soft, delicate sounds.
Stream LEAN’s song “Reverb Undertow” on SoundCloud and keep an eye (and ear!) on him – as we will definitely do!
