about

On his first label release, Feelings, Portland-based artist LEO ISLO focuses his efforts into a chillwave-laden house track saturated with warm pianos, pulsing baselines, and washy guitars. His wide and airy vocals are ever present, crooning introspectively about the isolation and vices of distant love before hitting us with a catchy hook.

LEO ISLO is new to the LA-based indie label LAMP in 2015, bringing with him a diverse catalogue of sounds spanning the genres of Lo-Fi Pop, chillwave, house, and indie-rock. His first EP, Modern Fiction, was released in 2014 and standout songs like Body Speak, Your Bones, and Zero grabbed attention early on, while also receiving nods from other contemporary electronic aficionados. He draws inspiration from artists like Jai Paul, Neon Indian, Toro Y Moi, Caribou, Washed Out, and Grimes.

If you’re a regular visitor to the site, you’ll surely be familiar with LA-based label and production house LAMP, who in our opinion are home to some of the more talented up-and-comers in the scene right now. Today, we’re happy to be premiering the first release on the label from their newest addition, Portland-based artist Leo Islo. A choice representation of the diversity LAMP itself displays, Leo brings with him a varied sound, covering the likes of chillwave, house, and indie rock seamlessly. And this newest single of his, Feelings, encompasses the best of those with ease. Backed by warm house beats, the track shifts between breezy keys, drifting guitar notes and a tenderly atmospheric vocal, making sure you’ll find this one swimming around your head on repeat in no time.

lyrics

I’m hearing voices in the static.
they’re calling out inside my head.
and I start to feel the panic.
of a new regret… no.

And maybe love is just a habit.
another means unto an end.
but you’re the vice inside the magic.
until I’m high again…

all of the words that I never said.
all of the love that went wasted.
and I never felt somebody else like that…
like I did.

And I get these feelings… feelings.
I get this feeling… that you’re giving me.

Oh… I could wait for your love. Your love.
Oh… Til’ the sun comes up, comes up.

I can’t lie. I can’t quit.
my body is under the influence.
in the afterglow, of what that did.
of what you did…

And I get these feelings… feelings.
I get this feeling… that you’re giving me.
