A collection of 7 songs, Stranger, unlike it’s namesake is a musical introduction into the world of Leo Kalyan. It is a flirtatious insight in to his influences, sounds, textures and unbounded capabilities as a producer, vocalist and songwriter.
Speaking of the mixtape, Leo describes how, “The Stranger mixtape began as a purely creative experiment, and trying to bring together the various sounds and influences I was playing with in the studio. Most of all, it’s just a playful glimpse into my musical imagination. I’d say it hints at what’s to come, but you never know – I like the element of surprise.”
Seamlessly blending notable covers, including his effortlessly infectious take on Charlie XCX’s ‘Boom Clap’ with original songs Full Circle (co-produced by Grades) and title track, Stranger (co-written and produced by SHIFT K3Y) his debut mixtape is an assertive statement of things to come, from this undeniable ‘one to watch’ for 2015.
