I Know Leopard at Soundlounge
Sydney art pop darlings, I Know Leopard are heading out for their first national headline tour since 2015 and are playing Soundlounge on May 26! It has been a long time coming, and they are wasting no time rolling out the red carpet on their debut album to be released on April 5!
Whittled down from over three years’ of demos and written against a back drop of emotional turmoil. Love is a Landmine ultimately finishes off with new love blossoming! An unashamedly romantic record that pulls you deep into the rich gamut of emotions that love inevitably drags you through.
First singles released from the album, “Landmine” and “Heather” demonstrate a stylistic shift for the band. Earning much love from beloved Triple J and community radio. Finding catharsis in the ethereal bliss of pop’s plastic and proggy past, the band revel in glam, dreamy synth pop and playful upbeat, 70s soft rock.
I Know Leopard are something of an anomaly! Gloriously out of step by bringing with them a sense of luxury, glamour and brains with them. As a finished product, Love Is A Landmine is the musical equivalent of a space blanket: gleaming, shimmering, retro-futuristic and synthetic, but will envelope you and warm you to your very core.
Produced by The Preatures’ Jack Moffitt and mixed by Luke Million (who added sounds from his legendary synth collection). I Know Leopard have created the perfect musical complement to the album’s open and impassioned lyrics. Lead vocalist Luke O’Loughlin, Rosie Fitzgerald (bass), Jenny McCullagh (violin and keys) and Todd Andrews (guitar) will be going out on their furthest reaching headline tour to date.
