In celebration of wrapping up her first ever North American headlining tour, LÉON has gone ahead and dropped a brand new EP as a gift to her fans, the fittingly titled, For You EP!
I caught the talented Swede when she hit the stage last month at her sold-out gig at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom. I fell even more in love and obsessed with her that evening, she’s adorable beyond words and the voice does not fail to impress. She’s the real thing, y’all.
When I caught LÉON‘s stellar show, there was just one song she performed I hadn’t heard up until that point: “For You,” the title track to her just released EP, which also comes packed with the previously released “Sleep Deprived,” “Liar” and “Think About You.”
The pulsating, finger-snapping synth groove keeps in line with the sleek electro-pop sounds of “Sleep Deprived” and “Think About You,” but with a touch of steel drum tropical flavor. As per usual though, the song’s loaded with rich husky vocals from LÉON, and a chorus that just won’t quit. “Messed up/ Baby, you are messed up/ Yeah, you/ Only you/ Special/ Tell me, was I special?/ For you/ Only you,” she sings. Follow that up with an equally infectious bridge chant (Try not to forget me, Try not to forget me…), and you’ve got yourself another stellar cut to add to her fast-growing flaw-free catalog.
If you haven’t gotten familiar with LÉON by now, do yourself a favor and dig in. She’s here For You!
