Leo Islo – Golden Grave

leo isloInitially reminding me of ‘Walking with Elephants’ before launching into a Jamie xx inspired chill-house record, ‘Golden Grave’ pushes buttons. Leo Islo is Portland-based producer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist Matt Pahler, born in Chile before moving to the USA. As influences go, the list hits a certain spot, including Jai Paul, Toro Y Moi, Caribou and Washed Out.

After a great 2015, this year Leo hopes to continue to rise with the ‘Golden Grave’ EP, focusing on themes of dark introspection, ephemeral mortality, and fleeting nostalgia shifting seamlessly between lo-fi pop, house, and indie rock. Interesting stuff – we can’t wait to hear more!
