Leon Coeur is a band from Madrid that has developed its own style between London and Madrid. Born on the streets of London, but coming from Spain, France and New Zealand, the group brings its own sound to the folk scene with worked harmonies and lyrics that portray the daily reality of its members.
With his first record published in 2020 “Tapas” and various singles, ‘Leon Coeur’ accumulates more than 1.5 million reproductions, appearing with aplomb to the indie-folk scene of our country. Its sound leads us to references such as Postcard Boy, 1975 or Caloncho, but his personal stamp is unmistakable from the first listen.
‘The Angels’ it is the starting point of the band’s direction in the coming months. A new direction focused on the so-called “bedroom pop”, with lyrics in Spanish. The song captures a search for balance between open pop melodies and lyrics, which tells us about going away.
All of this creating a ‘dreamy’ atmosphere around the synthesizer that surrounds the whole song, accompanying the vocal harmonies that follow one another alternately. A reggaeton beat sustains the melody until breaking with a change in tempo at the end and resolving with the most characteristic lyrics of the entire song.
