LÉON - Soaked
Swedish singer/songwriter LÉON has made quite the mark on the music industry, garnering praise from the likes of Vogue and Glamour, appearing on James Corden’s The Late Late Show and gaining a slot at Coachella. Her latest single, ‘Soaked’, reminds us just why that is.
Combining retro elements, such as new-age synth and jangly guitar riffs reminiscent of The Cure, with fresh pop influences and dreamy vocals, this track instantly had my attention. The sincere lyrics explore a sense of hopelessness through its impact on everyday life, with the chorus “And I just wanna get soaked // And rinse it all off” expressing a desire for a release.
LÉON has written a song that we’ve all related to at some point in our lives, which creates an urge to sing along. Although quite an emotional track, the jaunty beat, anthemic chorus and euphonic guitar makes it undeniably uplifting - you may even find yourself subconsciously bopping along.
‘Soaked’ is out now.
