The latest Swedish phenom, LÉON, has been dropping under the radar hits for the better part of two years with her debut EP, Treasure, and then her follow up this year, For You. The international singer-songwriter just released her music video for her new single, “Surround Me”, which is a standalone track, not featured on either of her previous EPs.
The track starts out with a happy, upbeat keyboard melody that leads into LÉON dropping her best impression of Amy Winehouse, but with fewer cigarettes. Her smoky, gravelly vocals are deep and rich, but she also has the ability to hit the high notes that creates wonderful breaks in her voice. The track is a sensual, wanton love song that just goes through the desires of being, for a lack of a better word, surrounded by her lover.
We have been fans of 23-year old Stockholm native for years and her music just continues to gather momentum here in the US. If you have not had a chance to catch her live, then you are missing out. “Surround Me” shows everything that LÉON is capable of. Her voice is unique. Her songwriting is brilliant. And her style is impeccable. She is a future pop superstar and we suggest that you hop on this bandwagon.
