There’s something to be said for success off the back of one track. Take a think back to Peace in the ‘B-blood’ days, Wide Eyed with their early ‘Bleak’ demo, or even ‘Superfood’ with their self-titled smash hit. It’s not that surprising, then, that since releasing their first song last month, Leopard have been a band with their name on a lot of peoples lips.
You only have to hear the track to understand why. ‘Breathe’ is a construction of soaring melodies, a forceful drumbeat, and awe-striking instrumental solos, that together mark the group out as one you want to pay rapt attention to. Even better, the song is free to download. So what are you waiting for? Play it/get it below.
