A tastemaker favourite this year, Lees provides a masterclass in modern pop with her latest release ‘California‘.
With her debut EP due in early 2022, if this is what she is producing now then it’s inevitable that any further long-player will place her in the upper echelons of new notable new artists.
‘California‘ is steeped in melancholy and that’s what helps make it not only incredibly beautiful but deeply affecting. There’s also a blunt honesty that flows through effortlessly. Topping everything off is a pristine production. Its dynamic swells around words “don’t go changing on me” bring a lump to the throat and it’s at those moments that you realise that you are just left thinking, “this is the real deal”.
