LÉON’s “Liar” Video Is An Emotional Sucker Punch
The buzz around LÉON has been growing since the arrival of “Tired Of Talking” in 2015 — a song so good, Katy Perry gave her seal of approval! The Swede followed it up with equally-great single, “Nobody Cares,” and cemented her status as a rising star with an impressive debut EP. (Treasure really lived up to its title). After taking a little break, she returned in late 2016 with a new track called “Liar” and, as a soulful, stripped-back ballad, it represents something of a change of pace from her quirky pop sound.
The video arrives today (January 24) and it’s a suitably subdued affair. Directed by Ted Malmros, the moody clip finds LÉON coming to grips with betrayal in dimly-lit rooms and the bathtub. “Liar” is the first taste of the singer’s debut album, which is expected to arrive this year. She will be promoting the song with a North American tour, which kicks off in Cambridge, MA on February 1 and then visits most major cities before winding up in Nashville on February 28.
