Today mynameisleonidas released their latest single for Kitsuné Musique, “waves”. The song sees the enigmatic songwriter exploring the limits of his genre.
Speaking on the song, mynameisleonidas writes: “This song is about something that I cannot see. In my opinion, nothing is more precious than the waves, it can influence my choices but it is beneficial for my health.” The song follows recent singles ‘Golden Rain’ and ‘A Peaceful Place’, which garnered strong online support, ranking No.2 on Deezer’s Indierama, No.3 on TIDAL’s .WAV and was also in the New Music Daily & New in Alternative Playlists on Apple Music.
mynameisleonidas is an artist from an unknown place somewhere on earth. We still haven’t met or spoken, all we know is he’s a he. The music is a unique blend of the best sounds of pop, rock and hip hop, sometimes sprinkled with vintage Greek lyre and Polish lyrics. This could either lead us to learn more about him or simply lead us on the path to the garden. One thing we know for sure, while his past remains unclear, he is most definitely a beacon for our future.
Coming out of nowhere with his signing to respected Parisian label Kitsuné earlier this year, mynameisleonidas has quickly made a name for itself around its sprawling production and deeply guarded anonymity. His most recent singles, “A Peaceful Place,” “lands”, “blue nightmares” and “gold rain” continued their streak of unorthodox arrangements, producing thrilling and dreamy lo-fi rap songs. The artist received accolades from This Song Is Sick and Pigeons & Planes for the debut singles “Rise in the Village” and “Please Don’t Run”.
His music has been on Apple Music’s New In Alternative playlist before, while pushing a unique blend of the best sounds of pop, rock and hip hop to their most dizzying yet exciting conclusions.
