CS PREMIERE | Leo Islo — Feelings
If you're a regular visitor to the site, you'll surely be familiar with LA-based label and production house LAMP, who in our opinion are home to some of the more talented up-and-comers in the scene right now. Today, we're happy to be premiering the first release on the label from their newest addition, Portland-based artist Leo Islo. A choice representation of the diversity LAMP itself displays, Leo brings with him a varied sound, covering the likes of chillwave, house, and indie rock seamlessly. And this newest single of his, Feelings, encompasses the best of those with ease. Backed by warm house beats, the track shifts between breezy keys, drifting guitar notes and a tenderly atmospheric vocal, making sure you'll find this one swimming around your head on repeat in no time.
Drawing clear comparisons to such artists as Washed Out, Toro Y Moi, and Caribou, you can have no doubt you'll be hearing a lot more of Leo Oslo in the future. For now, hit play on the brilliant Feelings below, and if you're curious to learn more, catch his interview with LAMP's own MR PUZL here.
