Shao Jean & Leyeux – “Patience”

From a a collaboration project between producer/songwriter Shao Jean and singer-songwriter Leyeux, the beautiful “Patience” is a track from their new EP, out this July. The track is rich and expansive, its soaring string-led majestic tone apparent in the first minute as it grows from trickling acoustics and piano. The wordless vocal punch just prior to the one-minute mark leads to the pleasant hook – “it’s only time when you’re counting” – with an added percussive shuffle. The exotic string tones and soft vocal pull reminds aesthetically of Owen Pallett at points, though overall elements like the brass-y addition prior to the two-minute mark and overall twinkling polish makes this project a unique one.
