Happy Thursday! And what a great Thursday it is. Our good friends over at Los Angeles Music Project (LAMP) have given us an absolute gift of a track to premiere today from Arizona bred, Portland transplant Leo Islo! "Higher Living" is a wonderfully written and even better produced track showing off both his silky smooth vocals and frictionless production style. This record will just melt over you taking you on a mellifluous journey of a twofold variety. First I feel this track blossoms with upbeat synth-wave melodies and sounds, but is also coupled with a somewhat melancholy overtone echoed by the lyrics and vocal style. A subtle kick accents a brooding bass line with waves of arpeggiated synths and an absolutely infectious chorus vocal. With this just his second release on LAMP and a relative newcomer to our pages, we have absolutely no doubt he's firmly implanted to stay.
