Leon in the Wild – “Powerlines”

First catching our ears with “Track Shoes” a couple months ago, Leon in the Wild continues to show a brisk rock infectiousness on his new track “Powerlines.”

The twinkling keys and acoustical strums in the introduction brings a climatic appeal, as lyrics regale about driving through town. The peppy, pulsing character thereafter plays infectiously, the vocals beckoning “let’s go.” “Powerlines” is a melodic success with power-pop and surfy allure, an ideal fit for kicking off a road trip or otherwise sun-filled adventure.

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2022’ Spotify playlist.
