New Find: LÉON Hits All The Right Notes On Killer Pop Anthem “Nobody Cares” (And Won Katy Perry’s Approval)
If early buzz counts for anything, Swedish newcomer LÉON is on the verge of big things. The 21-year-old made a huge splash with debut single “Tired Of Talking” — reaching number one on Hype Machine and, more importantly, winning Katy Perry’s seal of approval. She returned yesterday (August 24) with a new track called “Nobody Cares” and it’s every bit as artfully constructed and convincing as her first.
Produced by fellow Swede Agrin Rahmani (they are a package deal), “Nobody Cares” is a surprisingly upbeat anthem about obsessing over your ex. “I’m still used to have my baby holding me,” LÉON wistfully purrs over a blanket of hazy synths. “Come closer one last time, although it doesn’t feel as good ’cause you aren’t mine.” From the diva’s soulful voice to the blindingly euphoric chorus, there’s a lot to love about this. Listen below.
