l.a.-based experimental soul musician low leaf seeks spiritual guidance, truth, and wisdom in “pupil of the universe”

September 15, 2016

Ahead of the release of her upcoming album “Palm Psalms: A Light to Resolve All Darkness”, Los Angeles’s Low Leaf has dropped a new single called “Pupil of the Universe”. An organic soul track that explores themes of the metaphysical, it was the first song Low Leaf wrote for the new album. In it the singer-songwriter finds herself in search of spiritual guidance from the universe. Like the rest of the album, “Pupil of the Universe” employees live instrumentation and freeform orchestration embellished with strings, analog synths and wind instruments. Listen to the track below and pre-order “Palm Psalms: A Light to Resolve All Darkness”, out Oct. 15th via Low Leaf’s imprint, Creator DIY.
