Swedish act LÉON offers the next breakup anthem ‘And It Breaks My Heart’ – a soft, glowing pop track laced with soulful nostalgia.
Coming on the heels of two well-received singles released earlier this year, LÉON captivates listeners anew with her signature dusky alto caressing lyrics that strike to the core. LÉON sings of the anguish felt at the demise of a relationship–mourning how passionate love turns into indifference, which is portrayed beautifully in the storytelling visual for the track.
Emotive vocals accompanied by melodic violins and intimate rhythmic guitar demonstrate her knack for choosing arrangements that blend indie-pop with retro soul, resulting in a masterpiece listeners everywhere will relate with.
“Such a sadness in your eyes, now you’re looking down, you try your hardest not to show it. I can’t hold you, give you hope, ‘cause I’m not coming home,” sings LÉON. Whether you’re a heartbreaker or the one left behind, this track will keep tugging at your gut long after you’ve played it on repeat.
The critically acclaimed Swedish artist, who released her debut self-titled album in 2019, has earned a cult-following since releasing her debut single in 2015. The songstress plans to release a second full-length studio album in fall 2020 through LÉON Recordings, her imprint partnership with BMG.
LÉON has consistently delivered with every release, demonstrating her knack for crafting emotive, tender, and unforgettable pop songs. She has amassed over 440 million total global streams and is a regular critic’s favorite in the press, racking up praise from the likes of Vogue, Glamour, In-Style, The Fader, and more. In addition to making her late-night television debut on The Late Late Show with James Corden, she has sold outmany headline shows worldwide and performed at U.S. festival staples including Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza.
You almost don’t expect her to sing she’s so quietly cool…With effortless style equally reverent of dreamy sixties Laurel Canyon and modern day Europe, Swedish songstressLÉON projects the kind of understated confidence a non-chatty Quentin Tarantino character might have. She’s delicate, but dominant. She’s reserved, but charismatic. She’s instinctual, yet calculated. She’s sensitive, but sarcastically funny. She’s also completely in control of her own destiny—but she doesn’t need to tell you. Rather, you just kind of know she’s in charge. Once she steps up to a microphone, you get that from the robust powerhouse soul and retro spirit. Both of which shine through her 2019 self-titled full-length debut, LÉON. That extends to the release itself. Stepping up her game all around, LÉON took the reins and she’s in control this time, releasing it via her own LÉON Recordings in partnership with BMG. This body of work brings her full circle. For the first time, she gets to call all of the shots. It’s liberating and illuminates her work at its purest. That’s why it’ll connect.
