According to Noisey, “One of the most exciting things about music is that it doesn’t have to make absolute, technical sense for you to thoroughly enjoy it… Clashing sounds and words, beats and melodies to create a mood or feeling or swath simply of sound rather than rigid structure is an entirely pleasurable creative act.” The site claims that this is what Leyya has done on “Drumsolo,” one of many highlights on the group’s new album Sauna. “Leyya,” writes the site, “has created a sonic kaleidoscope with this song—it’s even like you can even see certain colours. The bleeps are red; the horns are blue and green; and singer Sophie Lindinger’s vocals skim overtop, golden and fizzy. In the middle of the track, we’re gifted the song’s namesake: a glorious drum solo. It’s frantic and improvisational; an exertion, or explosion, rather that having it exist to fit within the rest of the song’s structure.” The video is rad too, and Noisey has the premiere.
