Josh Taylor has captured our attention with his easy, breezy, lemon squeezy brand of indie songwriter music. We premiered his soothing single, “Talk,” and we loved it so much you know we had to bring him back on site for his latest release, “Leon.”
With a punky sedated guitar riff leading the way, you instantly feel a laid back yet driven sensation. As we settle into this unfettered groove, Taylor’s disarming voice begins to tell us a story of a life lived to the beat of your own drum.
“Meet Leon, this 68 year old dude living in a beach town in Israel. He’s the kind of guy who just did what he wanted, when he wanted. He was this incredible blend of a goofy, irreverent teenager and a wise, traveled veteran of life. I mean the guy hadn’t eaten a vegetable in like two decades but had a public library’s worth of literature littered throughout his home. I was lucky enough to spend a few nights crashing at his place with a friend and he just left this lasting impression on me…the song just flowed out.”
This new offering is the latest single from Taylor’s upcoming album, Breakfast in Bed. From what we’ve heard, we’re in for a collection of serious sea-side vibes and we’re getting antsy just thinking about it. Stream Josh Taylor’s new single, “Leon,” out now on Fantastic Tapes. Enjoy!
