Leon Else

HISKIND - - GET PRICKED -

Has dreamy syn­th­pop ever sounded so good? Mar­gate-raised/ La-based Leon Else holds the key to soul­ful, punchy ex­cel­lence, draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from his tor­mented, sex­u­al­ity-ques­tion­ing teens right through to his Lon­don dance school schol­ar­ships and El­ton John back­ing. Now signed to In­ter­scope, Else is set to add one fur­ther ad­di­tion to his al­ready-vi­brant CV: pop dom­i­na­tion as one of the finest new­com­ers around. And, with the re­cent re­lease of What I Won’t Do - a sum­mery flour­ish of synths and Carly Rae Jepsen-es­que pop tones there’s no­body else we’d rather lis­ten to (see what we did there?)
