Lees – California

A gorgeously constructed fusion of indie, soul and R&B from London newcomer Lees.

Following her introduction earlier in the autumn with ‘Honeymoon Suite’, this talent has already picked up support from the likes of BBC Introducing and Triple J.

She now returns with follow-up single ‘California’, and it’s just as superb as you’d expect.

“’California’ is ultimately about the challenges of being in a relationship with someone whilst they’re experiencing growing career success.”


New Music: Lees

London talent Lees creates a kind of indie-pop which, on the surface, feels subtle and light – but carries a deeper and more emotive tone lyrically.

‘Honeymoon Suite’ serves as a collage of breakups – within families, or with a lover – and, also, emotional breakthroughs.

“This song is just a mess of memories. I like that it feels lyrically a bit chaotic and confusing because that’s completely what I was feeling when I wrote it. ‘Honeymoon Suite’ is about the good times flooding back, trying to appreciate them, and moving on.”

 Lees’ first EP will be released in early 2022.
