LÉON, one of my favorite Swedes, is back at it again!
Just a few months after dropping her For You EP, and the talented singer-songstress is returning with a brand new offering: “Surround Me,” a similarly buoyant slice of synth-pop crafted in between marching drum beats, infectious piano melodies, and gospel-like instrumentation.
“Don’t overthink it/ Just finish up your drink/ And surround me, surround me/ The night ain’t over/ We’re far from being sober/ Surround me, surround me,” LÉON earnestly croons along the chorus. It’s a grand, care-free anthem filled with major earworm melodies (“So don’t let me go, no don’t let me go“), and vocals for days. A true display of LÉON‘s non-stop growth and increasingly confident artistry.
“‘Surround Me‘ is a song I wrote very recently, and it turned out to be one of the few songs I have that isn’t about an aching heart. It’s about feeling free and letting go in ‘the heat of the moment’,” LÉON told HillyDilly. “I feel like everyone’s been in a situation where you’ve decided to stay home alone, but then something happens and you change your mind and end up having the craziest night out.”
“Surround Me” by LÉON will be made available on all digital platforms tomorrow (July 7)!
