Single: MADI LEEDS – Long Distant Memory

“Rising indie-pop star Madi Leeds is set to mesmerise audiences with the release of her latest single, ‘Long Distant Memory.’ Known for her unique blend of synth pop sounds and captivating storytelling, Leeds takes listeners on a heartfelt journey exploring the bittersweet ties that bind nostalgia and grief.

A seasoned performer, Leeds has a resume boasting stages the likes of Melbourne Music Week, Moomba Festival, Sydney Fringe Festival and Knox Fest. More recently, stints in Japan and as supporting act for the popular 80s band Pseudo Echo have solidified her reputation as a dynamic artist with a commanding vocal presence and a personable, playful, storytelling nature. 

Leeds’ musical journey has been on an upward trajectory, with some notable releases such as ‘Identity’ produced by Gab Strum (Japanese Wallpaper) and 0-100′ produced by Hamish Patrick, the latter garnering global attention through Spotify’s Algorithmic Playlists. Initially backed by Push Records and supported by media outlets such as Triple J’s Home & Hosed and Good Nights, Leeds’ music has resonated with audiences worldwide.

Produced/mixed by Local the Neighbour’s David Quested and mastered by Hovvdy’s Bennett Littlejohn, Long Distant Memory is Leeds’s latest serving. In the song, Leeds delves deep into the melancholic yet beautiful realisation that some moments are fleeting and can never be relived. With influences from artists like Soccer Mommy, Girlhouse, and Liz Phair, Leeds’ latest indie masterpiece is a nostalgic trip down memory lane that will tug at the heartstrings of listeners.

The accompanying lyric video, shot in Japan, draws on a nostalgic 90s aesthetic, offering viewers a poignant visual journey through everyday moments that may soon become long distant. “

I came across a captivating new press release that introduced me to an exciting artist and their latest song. The accompanying lyric video, shot in Japan, perfectly complemented the classic indie pop rock sound of the song. Despite the genre’s current popularity, this particular track felt remarkably fresh to me. I found myself listening to it on repeat, and before long, its catchy melody had firmly lodged itself in my mind. The lyric video only enhanced the song’s infectiousness. I am definitely planning to revisit this song and allow myself to be swept away by its irresistible melody, compelling lyrics, and overall catchiness.
