I Know Leopard- Illumina

Posted by: on Apr 28, 2014 | No Comments


You may or may not have heard the buzz of I Know Leopard but with their debut EP Illumina kicking around the traps, they are a band to watch into 2014. Opening on a landscape of dreamy instrumentation with the lead single ‘She’. Combining elements of Brit Pop, Surf Rock and experimental electronica, it is very easy to see how I Know Leopard have supported the likes of Deep Sea Arcade, Miami Horror and The Rubens over the past year.

Jangly guitar lines and lush vocals from the five piece are evident throughout ‘Hold This Tight’ and make it a highlight on the EP. The result is extremely polished and dreamy set of tunes that remind me heavily of Grizzly Bear and Beach House.  ‘Daisy Eyes’ is a track that has been popping up a lot on Triple J recently and will be included on my shortlist for the 2015 Hottest 100. Check out these guys whilst it is still hip too.
