LEYYA's 'Oh Wow' is cause for exclamation

By Alex Brown - 25.9.17

Austrian duo LEYYA have delighted fans with the release of their new single 'Oh Wow.' Taken from their upcoming album Sauna set to drop on September 22nd via Las Vegas Records, it follows the success of their previous release 'Zoo.'

The pair have garnered substantial attention from the media including publications such as  Pigeons and Planes, Wonderland Magazine, Clash magazine, Complex, Konbini, The 405 and Consequence of Sound.

However, it is their captivating live shows that have put them on the map. Their extensive trail amongst Europe’s tastemaker festivals included shows at The Great Escape (Brighton, UK), Liverpool Sound City (Liverpool, UK), Tallinn Music Week (Tallinn, EE), PrimaveraSound (Barcelona, SP) and Electronic Beats at Reeperbahn Festival (Hamburg, DE) - before finally headlining Popfest (Vienna, AT) back home, where they played to a crowd of 20,000 in front of the famous Karlskirche in Vienna’s beautiful City Centre. LEYYA's performance at Iceland Airwaves was called one of the “most exciting” on display by Consequence of Sound; while Musikexpress was similarly enthusiastic about their show at Eurosonic Nooderslag, calling it “The best concert of this year’s Eurosonic Festival." Thus, LEYYA have established a dedicated fan-base through their live shows, with performances that have proved them to be an act on the rise.

Described as  "a combination of indie-pop and understated glamour - playful, bold and colourful while at the same time a ballad with depth," 'Oh Wow' sees LEYYA exploring unchartered territory. The track is at once magnetic and chic, whilst still walking the line of a singer-songwriter sound, proving that LEYYA seems to be an act capable of transforming themselves with ease.

Speaking of the single Leyya said:“'Oh Wow' was one of the very first songs we finished and therefore was the initial spark for the new sound we gravitated towards. Its one of the few new tracks that somehow reminds of our previous work treated from another point of view to push the track in, even for us, a fresh direction.”

In addition “Oh Wow” will be released with previous single “Zoo” as a B-side.
