mp3: "Not What You Need" - Leggy
The music of Leggy has long exuded a youthful, reckless energy and on new single "Not What You Need" our favorite Cincinnati trio dials that back, favoring a sound that's given room to flourish and explode. Shimmering, fuzzy riffs begin the first few seconds, serving as a lush backing to fall into, luring you further in, meeting up with the arrival of Veronique Allaer's intoxicating vocals. At its heart, "Not What You Need" is the same slick garage pop that the band has always been known for, with a unforgettable and catchy melody that has the band looking back - “I was standing there, fingers in my hair/ Won’t you be my baby again?" It's three and a half minutes that you can just lose yourself in, surrendering to their sweet as sugar sound and forgetting whatever awaits you on the other side.
