‘…Leon is pensive and darkly atmospheric, ‘Engage’ being a song he wrote about mental health issues a few years ago and is only now ready to be heard. Worth the wait: it’s minimalist in its construction – plucked guitar rhythm, simple electronic beats and almost gothic vocals that try not to give too much away, as if shying away from emotional exposure. Electronics and heavily effected guitars begin to swell and swarm around the song, like an imposing, enveloping darkness. It works well with the video, filmed in black and white in time-lapse motion on Port Meadow, where ducks and trees and general rustic calm take on a more sinister air with an almost sci-fi southern gothic sense of doom descending on the whole thing…’ Nightshift magazine, Oxford.
