Single: Lean Tee – bad dream / lethargy

‘Slept straight with his eyes half-shut’

Lean Tee is quickly becoming one of my new favourite artists. Their music has roots in classic, emo-kissed indie sounds but it manages to be something truly and bizarrely beautiful. ‘bad dream / lethargy’ harbours touches of bedroom pop favourites Teen Suicide and the likes, but fizzes with an odd energy courtesy of an old-school hip hop beat that works honestly a little too well. This is a bold and unique approach to a genre that often manages to be saturated and uninspired. Hats off to Lean Tee.
