Austrian duo Leyya get chromatic on kaleidoscopic single ‘Drumsolo’
Leyya is painting the town of electro-pop red, and pink, blue, green, and yellow too.
For in the Austrian-based duo’s tunes, the two are unraveling a new multicolor thread of electro-pop and sewing it into the very seams that so nicely dress up the genre. In a delectable exudence of multitudes, Leyya takes on both melancholy and joy in their music with a pleasantly pearlescent, polychromatic flair.
But Leyya’s new tune “Drumsolo” is so colorful, it’s almost if you can touch and taste the details.
Lead singer Sophie Lindinger’s vocals are scintillating overtop of the instrumentation so it’s as if the entire track were a friendly feud between function and improvisation, carrying the listener in both surprises and sweetness.
Talking about the explosive new track, which is part of their second album out in late January, they said, “’Drumsolo’ is one of our favourite tracks of the new album. On the one hand, it’s very complex (at one point it doesn’t even make sense ‘music theoretically’). But, on the other hand, the melody is very catchy so you don’t notice its quirkiness,” the band told Noisey earlier in November. “That’s what we always wanted our tracks to be like: different layers to discover depending on the listener’s mood.”
Leyya’s new album Sauna is out January 26 and is available for pre-order here.
