Kiran Leonard hit a high with his debut long player last year, which announced a talent and innovation for writing and playing that verged on the frightening.

Bowler Hat Soup found the “freakishly savantish” 18-year old deliver a record of impeccable richness and contained standout track “Brunswick Street” - a song about a road in Melbourne filled with record shops and vintage stores that Leonard used to visit when he was 10.

We met the Oldham-born Leonard for a session take of that track, which you can watch above.
