Listen: Leon Else – “Tomorrow Land (All Fall Down)”

12 Jun

Leon Else

We all see the world in different ways; show the same scene to five people and chances are you’ll get five interpretations. From this debut track, we get the impression that Leon Else would offer a sixth. “Tomorrow Land (All Fall Down)” is like looking at the world through broken glasses. The beauty is still evident but so is its fragility and flaws. It’s cracked, like the moon’s reflection on a lake disturbed by ripples; its splendour is interrupted and imperfect.

Else’s vocals seem to emanate from an area within hitherto untapped by man, like he opens his mouth and they escape, smoke like on the breeze. It gives an eerie, otherworldly feel to the track which is only augmented by the shrill, muted shriek as the song draws to a close. Despite evidently being home to ‘purple unicorns’, we imagine Tomorrow Land to be a vast and sparse monochrome world that stretches out beyond the distant horizon. Desolate and in ruins with no sign of life, none that can be easily seen at least, but like Else’s debut track, there is much more to it than first meets the eye.
