new music: dance punk diva lea lea makes her own rules on ‘die pretty vol ii’ #soundcheck

March 14, 2017

Lea Lea’s got that kind of sound that makes you stop whatever you’re doing and listen. the fuck. up. The dance punk diva’s latest EP is driving and noisy, but somehow still hook-filled and at times even soulful. From the lead single “Chasing Paradise” to the title track “Die Pretty,” Lea Lea’s songs follow women living by their own rules in a fucked up world. Death defying vocals illuminate surprising arrangements; there’s not a single inessential song here. Die Pretty vol II is the real thing.
