Young Green Eyes by Leaone
Self-produced and mixed by Jim Lowe (Stereophonics), debut artist Leaone began writing in his parent’s attic after a series of events (losing his girlfriend, job, and getting mugged) led him back home to his native Suffolk. Following a meeting with Jim at his Shepherds Bush studio the pair started working together, with Jim mixing and performing on some of Leaone’s tracks.
‘Young Green Eyes’ is the first of those to be released, and an astonishing start for a promising contemporary talent. Written about his ex-girlfriend, the track is a haunting, reflective piece that reflects Leaone’s biggest influences of Johnny Cash and Elliott Smith.
A forthcoming video for the single is made up of footage from a trip the pair took to Paris together, “it was a really tough thing to do emotionally, but I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate than offering the subject of the song on a plate”. In amongst the generic ballads and songs about break-ups, it’s refreshing to see an artist put genuine heartbreak on display, and this track is a spell-binding first taste of this new artist.
‘Young Green Eyes’ is released on April 15th 2016. Listen it here below.
