‘heartbreak’ is about a relationship with an expiration date. With its raw delivery, leo.’s stylistic vocal color seamlessly synchronizes with the smooth vibe of the instrumental accompaniment. The systematic layering of harmonized backing vocals (check out 2:24 to 2:29) adds a depth to the overall sound without detracting from the prominent lyricism.
The foundational piano progression, cinematic strings and subtle plucked notes combine to form the perfect platform for the vocal line. The natural ebb and flow of the instrumental intensity (check out the soft section from 3:12 to 3:20) delivers just the right amount of dynamic diversity to ensure that this single is engaging from start to finish. By the time ‘heartbreak’ draws to a close, you’ll find yourself humming along with the catchy hook and in need of hitting that repeat button for another listen.
From the well balanced production and creative compositional arrangement, to the impressive vocal performance, fans of leo., as well as those who appreciate new music, will definitely want to hear this single.
