Crispy clean London dream pop outfit Leif Erikson took inspiration for their name from the relatively little-known Icelandic explorer believed by many to have been the first Westerner to reach the shores of America. It’s a legend partly paid tribute through their music, which explores that idea of escaping to a simpler, more innocent time.
Their track ‘Looking For Signs’ is a beautifully crafted sun kissed gem, with its soft strung chords, meticulously layered riffs, and dreamy vocals. With stunning visuals to match, the result is a captivating audio visual experience which will have you wanting more.
Leif Erikson have a few things in the works, and a little bird might have told me about a potential release next year. Keep your eyes peeled young wizards.
