Sing Leaf, aka Toronto’s David Como and friends, occupies an enchanting world somewhere between bluesy folk and electronica.
We’ve been fans since he started creating those gorgeous folk melodies layered over rich yet sparse synth sounds as Sing Leaf in 2007. His last album Shu Ra was astounding and to think it nearly never saw the light of day, Como intending it for personal use as a cathartic way to deal with his divorce. We’re so glad we got to hear it: The songs are beautiful sketches of world music and bedroom-pop that will not only sound beautiful in a bedroom but also a field in Dorset. The sweeping, colourful sounds, epic textures, and intimate feel make it perfect for summer afternoons. We can specifically recommend the last weekend of August!
