As Leiik, musicians Amy Spencer (Junk Son, Bicep) and Avi Barath (Athlete Whippet, Bunki) distil their shared talents into captivating new single “Window”.
“Window” is the pair’s first release since 2016’s self-titled EP, and it sees them crystallise their spacious sound into another brooding slow-burner. Lyrically introspective, the track addresses how another’s pain can render us entirely helpless as observers, with Spencer’s vocals drifting over Barath’s dreamy, ambient electronics. Beneath this narrative, a simple, direct bassline helps the track take firmer shape.
There’s comparisons begging to be made to outfits such as The XX, but Leiik’s delicate percussion and richly textured synth swell are entirely their own, with the shifting focus of Barath’s production “Window”’s most unique highlight.
