This is Legacy, the atmospheric new track from Brooklyn post-punk band Spirits of Leo.
Legacy has a unmistakably retro feel, with sweeping guitar lines and gorgeous vocals reminiscent of 80s icons including The Smiths and The Cure. Anyone with even the slightest feelings of nostalgia and love for old school indie will be captivated by this track from the second it kicks in.
If Spirits of Leo aren’t on your radar, it’s time to fix that. They’re making music with an otherworldly ambiance. The floating melodies on Legacy create an immersive and ethereal tone, delivering some of the best alternative indie sounds I’ve heard coming out of the US in a good while.
Legacy is taken from the bands forthcoming LP Equinox. Recorded on both coasts and written over the course of four years. Equinox is a marked departure from the band’s previous discography, exploring darker, more cultivated themes and textures. The LP is set to be released on March 23rd, 2018 through Lux Perpetua. Keep an eye out for that one.
