South London garage rockers the Leo Star Electric band have released debut single ‘Soft & Gentle’
Having previously supported the likes of Melt Banana, and The Red In Sophie Loren (Dev from Blood Orange), the band channel Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth and the Melvins to create a wall of noise sound with pounding drums and angst-ridden vocals with production from Tim Cedar (Part Chimp)
The garage rockers are unafraid to tackle subjects loss on the new song, telling us “I was listening to a lot of Jesu at the time and liked the idea of a pop song that has a really oppressive feeling to it. I wanted to write an homage to my hero Bruce Lee and then when we fleshed the song out as a band the other guys kinda added their own stories; stuff about Amy Winehouse came up and we ran with it. It’s specifically an ode to Amy and Bruce Lee, two people we’ve loved and lost”.
