Confidence shines on Leyya’s new single ‘Zoo’ like sunbeams, and the feeling is infectious.
Bright eyed and eager, the Austrian duo craft bouncing beats and toe-tapping rhythms. Wrapping themselves around sleekly spoken lyricism, ‘don’t believe what they say about me, don’t believe a word’, the latest slice breezes an air of cool, an attitude to be envied.
Kissed with a touch of India, there’s a delightful collision of cultures; encapsulating techno-touched beats, sitar plucks and angelic vocal.
Undressing from the melancholic chills of their 2016 debut, Spanish Disco, Zoo captures a free spirit. A sugared hook runs throughout. It chases and catches, inescapable.
Having well and truly shaken the can, this track is as refreshing as that first sip of chilled, fizzy lemonade on the hottest day of the year. Leyya are a great choice for companions this summer.
